Wee Willie Winkie  (1890) 
by Rudyard Kipling

The transcription is from an 1890 edition of a work first published in India in 1888. Two of the four stories it contains had previously appeared in The Week's News during 1888. Where this is the case, information about first publication is provided, derived from Bibliography of the Works of Rudyard Kipling (1927), by Flora V. Livingston.

PREFACE.

This is the last book of the series, and it naturally ends with the little children who always trot after the tail of any procession. Only women understand children thoroughly but if a mere man keeps very quiet, and humbles himself properly, and refrains from talking down to his superiors, the children will sometimes be good to him and let him see what they think about the world. But, even after patient investigation and the condescension of the nursery, it is hard to draw babies correctly.
