The Jungle Book

Written by Rudyard Kipling

Part of the Collins Classics Series

The Jungle Book Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'There is no harm in a man's cub.' Best known for the 'Mowgli' stories, Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book expertly interweaves myth, morals, adventure and powerful story-telling. Set in Central India, Mowgli is raised by a pack of wolves. Along the way he encounters memorable characters such as the foreboding tiger Shere Kahn, Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear. Including other stories such as that of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a heroic mongoose and Toomai, a young elephant handler, Kipling's fables remain as popular today as they ever were.

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 Rudyard Kipling

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced 'Oliver Twist',' the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870 he was buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.
