About The Book

The ULTIMATE, complete collection of the original Mowgli stories!

This collection of stories features Mowgli, a young boy who lives amongst the wildlife of the jungle. From being tracked and hunted by a tiger to being raised by wolves and trained by a bear, this compilation includes all nine masterful tales about Mowgli and his relationships with his colorful animal friends and foes, including stories from The Jungle Book and every other Mowgli story Kipling wrote:

  • Mowgli’s Brothers
  • Kaa’s Hunting
  • How Fear Came
  • ‘Tiger ! Tiger!’
  • Letting in the Jungle
  • The King’s Ankus
  • Red Dog
  • The Spring Running
  • In the Rukh

    For more than one hundred years, the stories from The Jungle Book have enchanted readers, both young and old, with their important moral lessons and engaging narratives. By anthropomorphizing the animal characters in the stories—in a vein similar to Aesop—famed writer Rudyard Kipling provides readers with parables that teach family and community values while simultaneously entertaining and inspiring. Consequently, these stories have stood the test of time, have been published in a variety of editions and publications, and continue to be reprinted today.

    Including a new foreword by leading children’s literature expert Michael Patrick Hearn, Mowgli of the Jungle Book spotlights Kipling’s classic character as he’s faced with an abundance of epic adventures and challenges—all of which have underlying moral dilemmas sure to teach readers what matters most.
