The Jungle Book is one of Rudyard Kipling’s best known stories for children. Kipling wrote extensively about British soldiers in India but many of his tales are based on the people and places in the country which fascinated him.
A little village boy named Mowgli is brought up by a family of wolves. Thus Mowgli, the man cub, grows up amongst the wolf pack and other creatures of the jungle.
The story of Mowgli’s life in the jungle, his adventures and misadventures with his good friends Baloo and Bagheera, is a powerful tale of loyalty, love and courage. Kipling’s timeless classic also offers many truths on the importance of friendship and the foolishness of human nature.
