"How the Camel got his Hump" by Rudyard Kipling is an excellent short story. This short story tells the story about a lazy camel. Because the camel refused to help the dog, horse, and ox, with work, he, consequently, ended up with a hump on his back. Kipling tells the life lesson about laziness and its negative consequences. In my opinion, the short story was very cute. It reminded me of short stories read when I was young about good morals and standards to go by. Kipling's way of teaching people about laziness is both unique and interesting.
