LoveReading View on The Jungle Book: Macmillan Classics Edition

Mowgli, the little boy brought up in the jungle with the wolves, is one of the best-loved characters of fiction. His friends - and enemies – among the jungle animals include Baloo the sloth bear, Bagheera the panther, and Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, the mongoose are all wonderful characters too and Rudyard Kipling’s imagining of the jungle provides a thoughtful insight into that very special habitat. In his foreword, Ben Fogle captures his enthusiasm for the book as a child and also how it has influenced his later life.

One of a range of Macmillan Classics, beautifully produced hardback editions of some of the best-loved stories from the past. Each has a introduction by another author who, in their turn, have been influenced by the great writers of these books.

The Jungle Book: Macmillan Classics Edition Synopsis

The Jungle Book is a collection of Rudyard Kipling's animal stories, wonderfully told and interweaving moral lessons with classic tales. They include the stories of Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves in the Indian jungle, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a brave mongoose, and Toomai of the Elephants, the story of a young elephant handler.

Gloriously illustrated with the original line artwork by J. Lockwood Kipling C.I.E and W. H. Drake and with a foreword by Ben Fogle and a ribbon marker, this beautiful hardback edition of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, which was first published by Macmillan in 1894, is a truly special gift to treasure.

About 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.
