Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

The Jungle Books, regarded as classic stories told by an adult to children and best known for the "Mowgli" series, also constitutes a complex literary work of art in which the whole of Kipling's philosophy of life is expressed in miniature. The stories, a mixture of fantasy, myth and magic, are underpinned by Kipling's abiding preoccupation with the theme of self-discovery and the nature of the "Law."

Synopsis:

The Second Jungle Book continues the classic Mowgli stories and poems of the first Jungle Book, but unlike the previous volume includes outstanding stories that explore themes outside the life of jungle creatures. This volume also includes as an appendix "In the Rukh," the first Mowgli story to be published.

Synopsis:

Kipling's stories--originally written for his own children--still hold adults and children alike captive in their web of imagination, adventure, and magic. The Jungle Book contains the famous Mowgli series which follows the story of an abandoned baby brought up by wolves and educated in the ways and secrets of the jungle.
