The Jungle Book

by Rudyard Kipling

January 8, 2012 | Trade Paperback

The Jungle Book is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
The Jungle Book introduces Mowgli, the human foundling adopted by a family of wolves. It tells of the enmity between him and the tiger Shere Khan, who killed Mowgli's parents, and of the friendship between the man-cub and Bagheera, the black panther, and Baloo, the sleepy brown bear, who instruct Mowgli in the Laws of the Jungle.
The Second Jungle Book contains some of the most thrilling of the Mowgli stories. It includes Red Dog, in which Mowgli forms an unlikely aliance with the pything Kaa, How Fear Came and Letting in the Jungle as well as The Spring Running, which brings Mowgli to manhood and the realisation that he must leave Bagheera, Baloo and his other friends for the world of man.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mostly well done The Jungle book story was great as I expected as was Rikki Tikki but I did see a noticeable drop off in the other stories included in this book. While their message is important, the same quality writing found with the previously was lacking in the rest. Kipling is a great author and I look forward to reading more, but hope they are more along the lines of Mowgli's adventures and less from seals looking for safety from humans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Jungle Book This was my favourite book as a child. Don't be fooled by the Disney movie. This book is a set of related stories about animals. It is powerful, exciting, and moving, and the characters stay with you forever. If you like fantasy, you will probably enjoy this book. Here's a quote from it (unfortunately, I can't get the quotation marks to show up): Phff! That is a sharp tooth, said Akela, snuffing at the blade's cut in the earth, but living with the Man-Pack has spoiled thine eye, Little Brother. I could have killed a buck while thou wast striking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Way of the Jungle This wonderful classic of children's literature opens the mind of children and adults to the ways of the wild. Seven wonderful short stories are bound together to delight and facinate readers. Anyone who has not read The Jungle Book is sorely missing out. Wonderful for bedtime reading, this is a must read book for old and young alike.

About the Author

Kipling, who as a novelist dramatized the ambivalence of the British colonial experience, was born of English parents in Bombay and as a child knew Hindustani better than English. He spent an unhappy period of exile from his parents (and the Indian heat) with a harsh aunt in England, followed by the public schooling that inspired his "Stalky" stories. He returned to India at 18 to work on the staff of the Lahore Civil and Military Gazette and rapidly became a prolific writer. His mildly satirical work won him a reputation in England, and he returned there in 1889. Shortly after, his first novel, The Light That Failed (1890) was published, but it was not altogether successful. In the early 1890s, Kipling met and married Caroline Balestier and moved with her to her family's estate in Brattleboro, Vermont. While there he wrote Many Inventions (1893), The Jungle Book (1894-95), and Captains Courageous (1897). He became dissatisfied with life in America, however, and moved back to England, returning to America only when his daughter died of pneumonia. Kipling never again returned to the United States, despite his great popularity there. Short stories form the greater portion of Kipling's work and are of several distinct types. Some of his best are stories of the supernatural, the eerie and unearthly, such as "The Phantom Rickshaw,""The Brushwood Boy," and "They." His tales of gruesome horror include "The Mark of the Beast" and "The Return of Imray.""William the Conqueror" and "The
