Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English journalist, poet and novelist. He was born in India, where he spent the first six years... of his childhood. The stories of his popular "Jungle Books" were written when Kipling lived in the United States. In 1907 Rudyard Kipling was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature – as the youngest recipient to date. Also he was the first English-language writer to receive the prize. ------ Kipling published his famous "Jungle Book" in 1894. It tells the well-known stories of Mowgli, a boy growing up in the jungle with animals and the laws of nature as his teachers. Furthermore the book contains stories of animal protagonists (for example the mongoose and snake-hunter Rikki-Tikki-Tavi), told as fables which use animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons.
