THE JUNGLE BOOK, Rudyard Kipling

by Rudyard Kipling (1894) free ebook/ english
These are the stories of Mowgli “the frog,” a man-cub raised by wolves, and his journey to adulthood with the help of Baloo the bear, Bagheera the black panther, and many other memorable characters. The tales of Mowgli became a Disney movie classic, and the tale of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi the mongoose has also been adapted many times over, but the film versions are nowhere near as classic as this timeless book.–Submitted by Peter Whitlock

Rudyard Kipling is not only a master of the English language, he is a master teller of tall tales who understands animals and people, their habits and 19th century India. His stories are a mix of credibility, delightful critters and colorful characters mixed with a touch of poetic license. The Jungle Book is timeless and filled with stories for children of all ages.–Submitted by PJ Little free ebook
