The Lovereading4Kids comment

Probably one of the best known and best-loved classics has to be The Jungle Book. This Oxford edition is the original story. The unforgettable story of Mowgli, the man-cub, his jungle friends Baloo the Bear, Kaa the python and his enemy, the evil tiger, Shere Khan.

The Jungle Book in a nutshell:

Boy Mowgli raised by wolves. Wise animals teach human cub laws of jungle. Mowgli kidnapped by troublesome monkeys; rescued by bear, panther and python. Ferocious tiger Shere Khan tries to take Mowgli; Mowgli triumphs with burning branch. Rivalry continues. Oh, and there’s a heroic mongoose, too.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. This edition of The Jungle Book is freshly illustrated — by Maurice Wilson - in colour plates that have the quality of cave paintings, and in clear line and wash pictures of Mowgli and his jungle friends.

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.
