Kim By Rudyard Kipling - Just The Good Stuff Kim is a spy and picaresque novel, written by Rudyard Kipling. It was first published serially in McClures's Magazine from December 1900 to October 1901 as well as in Cassell's Magazine from January to November 1901, and first published in book form by MacMillan & Co. Ltd in October 1901. The story is set against the backdrop of The Great Game, the political conflict between Russia and Britain in Central Asia.

Considered by many to be Kipling's masterpiece, opinion appears varied about its consideration as Children's literature or not. The fact that it has been read by many children and treated as suitable literature for children by some parts of academia should not be used to indicate Kipling's intention.

An MGM film adaptation of the novel, adapted by Helen Deutsch and Leon Gordon, directed by Victor Saville and produced by Leon Gordon was released in 1950. starring Errol Flynn, Dean Stockwell, Paul Lukas, Robert Douglas, Thomas Gomez and Cecil Kellaway. It featured a music score by André Previn.
