This classic of which we are all familiar – the story of Mowgli the boy rescued and brought up in the jungle by wolves, of Rikki Tikki Tavi the mongoose amongst a number of other jungle stories – has been vividly brought back to life as much for grown-ups as for children by Templar Publishing. Stunning illustrations by award winning illustrator Robert Ingpen complement Kipling’s thrilling, fantastical, magical, mythical and vivid narrative, that is as relevant today as it was when published well over 100 years ago. This edition is an absolute must for every bookshelf in the land, to be treasured for its entertainment for a family curled up together to read aloud in the evenings or for a child tucked up in bed to read alone through the cold winter months as for its beauty on your bookshelf.

Synopsis

The Jungle Book (Illustrated by Robert Ingpen) by Rudyard Kipling

Rescued as an infant from Shere Khan, the tiger with the blazing eyes, Mowgli is brought up by the Laws of the Jungle. He learns how to hunt and how to speak the languages of the Jungle creatures. As he embarks on a series of thrilling escapades, Mowgli encounters such unforgettable creatures as Bagheera, the graceful black panther, Baloo the kindly brown bear, and Kaa, the snake with the hypnotic stare.

But Mowgli is a Man, and as he grows up he learns that he must take his place among his own kind. First, though, he must face his life-long enemy- Shere Khan- in a battle of wits and strength to discover who is the true King of the Jungle.

Kipling’s animal favourites are brought to life in stunning illustrations by the award-winning Australian artist Robert Ingpen.

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.
