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.

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.

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 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.
