9780141325293: The Jungle Book (Puffin Classics)

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. Brilliantly introduced by bestselling author, Christopher Paolini.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

From the Back Cover:

First published in 1894 and 1895, The Jungle Books remain some of the most beloved tales of all time.

Adored by readers of all ages, these classic stories in two volumes spin the unforgettable story of Mowgli -- a boy raised by a pack of wolves -- as he learns indelible lessons about the laws of the jungle, as well as the needs of the heart. Through Mowgli's journey, readers also meet the tiger Shere Khan, who stalks man and beast alike, the rock python Kaa, who dispenses wisdom, and the aging wolf Akela, who struggles as his leadership of the pack is challenged. Set in India, Kipling's great masterpiece is an allegory for Britain's imperialism, filled with high adventure and extraordinary characters. The mythic tale of a boy looking for where he truly belongs -- either with the man-pack of the village or the wolf-pack of the wild -- The Jungle Books touch both our intellect and our emotions, while Kipling's dazzling storytelling makes them the timeless archetype for popular tales to come.
