This beautifully produced colouring book contains all your favourite characters from Kipling's classic story - Mowgli, Baloo the Bear, Bagheera the Panther, Kaa the Snake, not forgetting the terrifying tiger, Shere Khan. Many of the drawings in this book were inspired by the original illustrations by Kipling's father, J. Lockwood Kipling, who illustrated the first edition of The Jungle Book, published by Macmillan in 1894.

A fabulously decorative colouring book based on Kipling's classic story, The Jungle Book.

With additional decorations and drawings based on traditional Indian designs, and with panels of text from the original story, this book will give hours of colouring fun, and is a wonderful introduction to this well-loved tale and Kipling's unforgettable characters.

As the original publisher of The Jungle Book in 1894, Macmillan is publishing this book is part of a range of titles to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Kipling's birth in 1865. Printed on high-quality paper that will take crayon, paint or felt pen.

About the Author

Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay in 1865. He was educated in England but returned to India as an adult and worked as a journalist. There, he produced stories, sketches and poems that made him a literary celebrity when he returned to England in 1888. After their marriage, Kipling and his wife moved to Vermont, where he wrote The Jungle Book. Published in 1894, it became a children's classic all over the world. Tales of every kind, including historical and science fiction, continued to flow from his pen, including Kim (1901) and the Just So Stories (1902). From 1902 Kipling made his home in Sussex, but continued to travel widely and caught his first glimpse of warfare in South Africa, where he reported in the Boer War. Kipling was the recipient of many honorary degrees and other awards. He was the first writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize, in 1907, and in 1926 he received the Gold Medal of the royal Society of Literature. Kipling died in 1936.
