Publisher's Description

For more than one hundred years, the stories from The Jungle Book have enchanted readers, both young and old, with their important moral lessons and engaging narratives. By anthropomorphizing the animal characters in the stories—in a vein similar to Aesop—famed writer Rudyard Kipling provides readers with parables that teach family and community values while simultaneously entertaining and inspiring. Consequently, these stories have stood the test of time, have been published in a variety of editions and publications, and continue to be reprinted today.

This collection of stories features Mowgli, a young boy who lives amongst the wildlife of the jungle. From being tracked and hunted by a tiger to being raised by wolves and trained by a bear, this compilation includes nine masterful tales about Mowgli and his relationships with his colorful animal friends and foes. In addition to the stories included from The Jungle Book, this book also features additional parables of the dynamic young protagonist.

Including a new foreword by leading children’s literature expert Michael Patrick Hearn, Mowgli of the Jungle Book spotlights Kipling’s classic character as he’s faced with an abundance of epic adventures and challenges—all of which have underlying moral dilemmas sure to teach readers what matters most.

Author Bio

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India in 1865. One of the most revered writers in recent history, many of his works are deemed classic literature. To this day, he maintains an avid following and reputation as one of the greatest storytellers of the past two centuries. He published hundreds of short stories, novels, and poetry collections, including the short story “The Man Who Would Be King” and the famed poem “If.” In 1907, he received the Nobel Prize for Literature. He died in 1936, but his stories live on—even nearly one hundred years after his passing.
