The Jungle Books

by Rudyard Kipling
Release date: 2000
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, short stories

Mowgli, the man-cub who is brought up by wolves in the jungles of Central India, is one of the greatest literary myths ever created. As he embarks on a series of thrilling escapades, Mowgli encounters such unforgettable creatures as Bagheera, the graceful black panther, and Shere Khan, the tiger with the blazing eyes. Other animal stories range from the simple heroism found in "Rikki-tikki-tavi" to the macabre comedy "The Undertakers". A rich and complex fable of human life, Kipling's enduring classic dazzles the imagination with its astonishing descriptive powers and lively sense of adventure.
