Rudyard Kipling first began The Jungle Books in 1892, but would not complete the volume until 1895. During his life time they were widely appreciated, but perhaps even more so today, as they are some of the stories Kipling is best remembered by. The books start with the tale of a baby who wanders into the jungle and is found by a tiger intent upon eating him. But the child is taken in by a wolf mother who raises him as one of her own cubs, calling him Mowgli the Frog. But Mowgli is a “man's cub” and something is sure to come of it. Mowgli's stories are only a few of the tales to fill the fascinating Jungle Books, timeless stories about Rikki-Tikki-Tavi the fearless mongoose, the White Seal on his search for a safe haven, and the humorous tale of the Camp Animals – each story has delighted readers since their publication.

Mowgli, the man-cub who is brought up by wolves in the jungles of Central India, is one of the greatest literary myths ever created. As he embarks on a series of thrilling escapades, Mowgli encounters such unforgettable creatures as Bagheera, the graceful black panther, and Shere Khan, the tiger with the blazing eyes. Other animal stories range from the simple heroism found in 'Rikki-tikki-tavi' to the macabre comedy 'The Undertakers'. A rich and complex fable of human life, Kipling's enduring classic dazzles the imagination with its astonishing descriptive powers and lively sense of adventure.Product Description:
