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 instruct Mowgli in the Laws of the Jungle. This edition contains many of the original drawings by Rudyard Kipling's father, and includes Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, Kipling's wonderful story of the duel between the mongoose and Nag the cobra; as well as Toomai of the Elephants; The White Seal; and Her Majesty's Servants. A Wordsworth Classic.
Wordsworth classics are complete, unabridged editions of timeless literature and poetry offered at a very affordable price. Each one is delightfully illustrated and carefully reprinted to appeal to the general public while preserving its high quality. Some of the most popular novels to study in school, such as Uncle Tom's Cabin and Charles Dickens' The Pickwick Papers, include more in-depth, insightful introductions as well as helpful notes in the back of the book to offer readers definitions or background to words or phrases appearing in the text. ~ Steph
