Orphaned as a baby, human-boy Mowgli is adopted by wolves, befriended by Baloo the bear, and educated in the wonders and dangers of the Indian jungle. But the adventures of The Jungle Book don’t end with the young man-cub and his unusual new family. Through tales of Kotick the White Seal, Rikki-tikki-tavi the mongoose, and others, readers learn about courage and survival, rules and order, principles and morals, coming-of-age, and the thrill of self-discovery.

Rudyard Kipling’s fables reflect both his childhood in India and his vivid imagination, while exploring the relationship between civilization and the wild.

AmazonClassics brings you timeless works from the masters of storytelling. Ideal for anyone who wants to read a great work for the first time or rediscover an old favorite, these new editions open the door to literature’s most unforgettable characters and beloved worlds.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Jungle Book, this edition of The Jungle Book (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

About the Author:

Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) was an English author best known for fables set in the Indian jungles, including the tales in The Jungle Book. Much of the imagery in Kipling’s work draws on his early years in India.

After his education in England, Kipling returned to India, where he penned dozens of stories and poems for magazines while working at a daily newspaper in Lahore. He later traveled throughout the United States, landing in a secluded Vermont town where he produced two Jungle Book collections, the novel Captains Courageous, and a poetry collection, Barrack-Room Ballads, which contained his famous poems “Mandalay” and “Gunga Din.”

Kipling was recognized as an innovator of the short-story form, and his children’s books were popular in their time and remain so today. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.
