Rudyard Kipling was born in India in 1865 and spent his early years reveling in the country's exotic delights. At five he was sent... to school in England, and did not returned until 1882, when he worked as a reporter on the Civil and Military Gazette. A prolific writer, he soon became famous for a prodigious range of tales and poems, from the high adventure of The Man Who Would Be King, through the gritty doggerel of Barrack Room Ballads to charming children's story such as Puck of Pook's Hill and, perhaps his most celebrated offering, The Jungle Book. Although it includes such famous tales as 'Rikki-Tikki-Tavi' The Jungle Book's true hero is Mowgli, a young boy raised with wolves, and hunted by the evil tiger Shere Khan. All is well until the realization dawns in Mowgli that he is human - knowledge he tries to repress as he is appalled by humankind's greed and destructiveness. Through a series of perils and adventures, Mowgli gradually comes to terms with the animal and human facets of his life. Like all good children's stories, these tales have a depth of allegory and symbolism that allows them to be enjoyed by adults as well as children. This edition includes The Second Jungle Book (hence the title: The Jungle Books) and completes the story of Mowgli. It is a work that can be read throughout a lifetime - one that will bring pleasure and further insights at each reading. read more

The Jungle Book (1894) is a collection of stories written by Rudyard Kipling. Kipling was born in India and spent the first 6 year...s of his childhood there. After about ten years in England, he went back to India and worked there for about six-and-half years. All of the stories were published in magazines in 1893-4. The original publications contained illustrations, some by Rudyard's father, John Lockwood Kipling. These books were written when Kipling lived in Vermont.The tales in the book (and also those in The Second Jungle Book which followed in 1895, and which includes five further stories about Mowgli) are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families and communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle." Other readers have interpreted the work as allegories of the politics and society of the time. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned 'man cub' Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. The most famous of the other stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, and "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. Kotick, The White Seal seeking for his people a haven where they would be safe from hunters, has been considered a metaphor for Zionism, then in its beginning.

The Jungle Book (1894) is a collection of stories by English author Rudyard Kipling. The stories were first published in magazines... in 1893–94. The original publications contain illustrations, some by the author's father, John Lockwood Kipling. Kipling was born in India and spent the first six years of his childhood there. After about ten years in England, he went back to India and worked there for about six-and-a-half years. These stories were written when Kipling lived in Naulakha, the home he built in Dummerston, Vermont (just north of Brattleboro), in the United States. There is evidence that the collection of stories was written for his daughter Josephine, who died in 1899 at six years of age by pneumonia; a rare first edition of the book with a poignant handwritten note by the author to his young daughter was discovered at the National Trust's Wimpole Hall in Cambridgeshire in 2010. The tales in the book (as well as those in The Second Jungle Book which followed in 1895, and which includes five further stories about Mowgli) are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families, and communities.

The most famous of the other four stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, and "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is followed by a piece of verse. read more
