9780140621044: Jungle Books (Penguin Popular Classics)

Mowgli, the man-cub who is brought up by wolves in the jungles of Central India, is one of the greatest literary myths ever created. As he embarks on a series of thrilling escapades, Mowgli encounters such unforgettable creatures as Bagheera, the graceful black panther, and Shere Khan, the tiger with the blazing eyes. Other animal stories range from the simple heroism found in 'Rikki-tikki-tavi' to the macabre comedy 'The Undertakers'. A rich and complex fable of human life, Kipling's enduring classic dazzles the imagination with its astonishing descriptive powers and lively sense of adventure.

About the Author:

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay in 1865, and his stories, sketches, and poems made him a literary celebrity. Published in 1894, "The Jungle Book" became a children's classic all over the world, and tales of every kind continued to flow from Kipling's pen, including "Kim" (1901) and the "Just So Stories" (1902). Kipling was the recipient of many honorary degrees and was the first English writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize, in 1907. In 1926 he received the Gold Medal of the Royal Society of Literature. Kipling died in 1936. Robert Ingpen began studying illustration and book design at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. He was recently honored with Membership of the Order of Australia. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen medal for his contribution to children's literature. He lives in Barwon Heads, Australia.

She gives Bagheera, the black panther; Sher Khan, the tiger; and the other jungle creatures marvelous accents which will entrance listeners of all ages.
