Kipling is one of those writers who reflected in his work the living pictures of nature, animals living in it, people living far from civilization. He traveled a lot, taking inspiration from the living and vibrant world around him. In the arsenal of works, a special line marks out tales. They are relatively few, but they are all filled with the spirit of adventure and virtue, each of them is unique in its own way. The uniqueness of Rudyard Kipling's fairy tales consists in their absolute ideality. They are easy to read because of a simple and understandable story for children, tactfully and subtly help young readers to cultivate the qualities inherent in positive characters, to avoid evil people. In their context, fairy tales contain a hidden morality, educate and develop children. They allow the reader to deeply feel the events and move to the magical world where the heroes will have to show all the best qualities of character, be able to compete for victory, be strong and courageous, kind and brave. Kipling's tales, of course, are masterpieces of world children's literature.
