The Jungle Book

3.99

The Jungle Book is Rudyard Kipling's beloved story of Mowgli, the jungle boy rescued and raised by tigers in the heart of the jungle. His tales feature such unforgettable creatures such as Baloo, the kindly brown bear; Bagheera, the graceful black panther; and Kaa, the snake with the hypnotic stare. In addition, this timeless collection includes other favorites, such as “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi,” “The White Seal,” and “Toomai of the Elephants.”

 

RUDYARD KIPLING (1865-1936) was a Nobel Prize winning English poet, short-story writer and novelist. Numerous authors were strongly influenced by Kipling's writing and Kipling has garnered high praise from writers as varied as Jorge Luis Borges, Poul Anderson, and Randall Jarrell who wrote that, “After you have read Kipling's best stories you realize that few men have written this many stories of this much merit, and that very few have written better stories.” His Captains Courageous, The Jungle Book and Kim, are regarded as masterworks.
