When the tiger Shere Khan attacks a village in the Indian jungle, little Mowgli is separated from his parents. A pack of wolves accepts him as their own offspring and feeds him. Mowgli is raised by the bear Baloo, the panther Bagheera, and the python Kaa. They teach Mogli the laws and language of the jungle. After his apprenticeship, Mowgli is strong enough to seek battle with the tiger Shere Khan. The bestseller “The Jungle Book” from 1894 made Rudyard Kipling famous. In 1907 he received the Nobel Prize for Literature. “The Jungle Book” was filmed several times.
Kipling’s adventure story has become one of the most popular youth books in the world since Walt Disney’s wonderful cartoon. But it is precisely this apparent fame that distracts attention from this literary masterpiece that conjures up the exoticism of the jungle and the fascination of India like no other. The almost limitless imagination, the sparkling wit and not least the extensive knowledge of the Indian animal and plant world make up the magical charm of these stories.
The book is decorated with the wonderful original illustrations by John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911). Its size is about 170 pages.
