The Jungle Book is a collection of stories by English author Rudyard Kipling. The tales in the book 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.
When young little Mowgli´s parents are run out of their camp by a formidable Bengal tiger, the toddler scampers to safety alone in the cave of a Seeonee wolf pack. Thereafter forest animals succor Mowgli, and through his wits and their kindness, he reaches adulthood. Paradox exists in this paradise, but nowhere more forcefully than in the Bengal Tiger, Shere Khan. In the contest that must occur between Shere Khan and Mowgli, which will triumph: the human intelligence of Mowgli, or the deep, instinctive cunning of the wily striped cat? Kipling, who was forced to learn the art of self-preservation at a foster home and boarding school, believed in following the ´´Law of the Jungle´´. Part silly, part serious, these delightful stories convey Kipling´s message in a way that children and adults alike will appreciate time and time again. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Burns.
