By Rudyard Kipling
The Jungle Book introduces Mowgli, the human foundling adopted by a family of wolves.
It tells of the hostility between him and the tiger Shere Khan, who killed Mowgli's parents, and of the friendship between the man-cub and Bagheera, the black panther, and Baloo, the sleepy brown bear, who instructs Mowgli in the Laws of the Jungle.
Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book expertly interweaves myth, morals, adventure and powerful story-telling.
