Rudyard Kipling - The Jungle Book (New Paperback)
The Jungle Book (1894) is a collection of stories by the English author Rudyard Kipling.
Most of the characters are animals such as Shere Khan the tiger and Baloo the bear, though a principal character is the boy or "man-cub" Mowgli, who is raised in the jungle by wolves.
The Jungle Book is a classic story of friendship between man and beast. Saved from the jaws of the evil tiger Shere Khan, young Mowgli is adopted by a wolf pack and taught the law of the jungle by lovable old Baloo the bear and Bhageera the panther.
The adventures of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi the snake-fighting mongoose, little Toomai and the elephant's secret dance, and Kotick the white seal are all part of Mowgli's extraordinary journey with his animal friends.
With an introduction by Christopher Paolini. The book includes a behind-the-scenes journey, including an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more.
Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in India, although educated in England. He was a prolific writer and recognised as a genius. In 1907 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. His many books for children include Just So Stories and Kim.

Rudyard Kipling is one of the best-known of the late Victorian poets and story-tellers. He was born in India, which inspired much of his work. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book, Kim, and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King". Although he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1907, his political views, which grew more toxic as he aged, have long made him critically unpopular.
