ABOUT THIS BOOK

Imagine growing up among wolves, being friends with a panther and a bear, and hunting the most fearsome animal in the wild—the man-killing tiger Shere Khan. Rudyard Kipling portrays the exciting and adventurous jungle upbringing of Mowgli in this timeless classic. Still amazingly contemporary even though it was written more than 100 years ago, the pacing, language, and characters will keep readers young and old turning the pages, and then begging for more.

Originally published in two volumes, this edition collects all the Mowgli stories and adds the very popular Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and Toomai of the Elephants. This edition will feature an introduction by Newbery-award winner Neil Gaiman.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

RUDYARD KIPLING was born in Bombay, India, in 1865, and when he was five years old his parents took him to England. As an adult, he lived in India, England, South Africa, and even the United States. The Jungle Book, with its tales of Mowgli, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, and the white seal, was first published in 1894. Kipling won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. He died in 1936 and was buried in Poet's Corner in Westminster Abbey, London.
