How the Leopard Got His Spots by Stephanie P. Gilman, Just so much much stories


"How the Leopard Got His Spots" is a retold classic from the Jungle Book, renamed the Just So Much Fun Stories. Henry was a plain leopard who liked to sneak and spook his friends Zebra and Giraffe, who also were still plain themselves, on the plains. Henry could blend in well for sneaking in the plains because he had no spots. Then Henry's friends moved to the woods, where shadows made hiding harder for the plain leopard. Hiding in the woods, Zebra and Giraffe and other animals grew patterns to help them camouflage themselves. But Henry got bored trying to find new friends to spook and one day a mouse suggested that Henry go away and try another spot. Henry looked and looked for the spot, but could find nothing, and no friends either. Eventually Henry used his sense of smell, hearing, and touch to find his hiding friends Zebra and Giraffe. the friends decide to help Henry understand how they can hide in the forest shadows by playing Hide and Seek with him. But Henry could not blend in to the woods with no markings, just his plain leopard coat. Zebra advised him to stay and enjoy the woods, to grow his own markings to help him blend in. Henry decided he wanted spots for markings. "By the time Henry could sneak up on his friends again, he no longer wanted to spook them. So, from that day on, he kept the spooking to a minimum and used his sneaking skills to become a champion at Hide and Seek instead. He still holds the number one SPOT!" Delicate, expressive water color illustrations show the transformation of Henry from a plain to a spotted leopard, as well as from a sneaky friend to a fun friend.
