The Jungle Book is a collection of stories. The first tales follow a boy, Mowgli, who gets lost in the jungle when he is very young. A panther finds the little boy and a wolf raises Mowgli as one of the wolf pack's own. The man-cub, as they refer to him, is looked after by the wolves, while other animals teach him the laws of the jungle. Mowgli learns valuable lessons in survival and courage by living as just another animal in the wilderness. He learns about respect for all living creatures and that man is the biggest threat to the jungle.
Biography of the author
Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865 – 1936) was an English novelist, short-story writer, poet, and journalist. He was born in British India, which inspired much of his work. He is seen as an innovator in the art of the short story. Kipling in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was among the United Kingdom's most popular writers. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, as the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and at 41, its youngest recipient to date.
