The Jungle Book introduces Mowgli, the human foundling adopted by a family of wolves. It tells of the enmity 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.

The Second Jungle Book contains some of the most thrilling of the Mowgli stories. It includes Red Dog, in which Mowgli forms an unlikely alliance with the python Kaa, How Fear Came and Letting in the Jungle as well as The Spring Running, which brings Mowgli to manhood and the realisation that he must leave Bagheera, Baloo and his other friends for the world of man.

Back cover copy

Shere Khan the tiger is the fiercest, most terrifying beast in the jungle. His enemy is man, but he especially hates Mowgli, the abandoned baby adopted by a kindly family of wolves, and swears to kill him. As the years pass, and Mowgli is brought up as a wolf-cub, the tiger's threats do not lessen. It is only through the protection of his friends-Baloo the bear, Kaa the python and Bagheera the black panther-that Mowgli survives, and begins to learn all there is to know about the Laws of the Jungle.

About Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), wurde in Bombay geboren, wuchs aber - wie es damals üblich war - in Großbritannien auf. Im Alter von 17 Jahren kehrte er nach Indien zurück und begann als Journalist für anglo-indische Zeitungen zu arbeiten. Seine literarische Karriere begann 1886 mit Kurzgeschichten. Zu der Zeit, als die Dschungelbücher veröffentlicht wurden (1894/95) war er bereits einer der berühmtesten lebenden Schriftsteller Großbritanniens. Er erhielt 1907 im Alter von nur 42 Jahren den Nobelpreis für Literatur.
