LoveReading View on The Jungle Book

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.
