Oh crap.... i feel like an idiot... Poe wrote tell tale heart. Kipling wrote Rikki tikki tavi and such. Kipling wrote a poem called the dog or something like thatt and it is vair good. Bloody sad tho. He also wrote a good poem called Boots Welll i am an idiot. Oh well

The only things I've read from Kipling are "The Jungle Book" and "Kim"...I liked Kim mostly... so adventurous and involving...and so human:)

Rudyard was a very complex personality & wrote mainly for adults. It's only because of The Jungle Books & Kim that people think he wrote just for kids. To discover some of this personality, you should read his short story collections especially those set in England & not just those set in India which also provide a seriously good read. He wrote many more stories than most people think or know about. Try "The Light That Failed" or even "Puck of Pook's Hill" & its sequel "Rewards & Fairies" which he wrote to get English kids interested in where they came from historically. Don't let the word 'fairies' in the title fool you.
