Arguably his best known work, Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is a classic for the ages. First published in 1894, this collection of fables has captured the imagination of children for generations. Many of the stories follow the adventures of Mowgli, the ‘man-cub’ raised by wolves, and his companions Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther as they explore the jungle and face off against foes such as the fearsome tiger Shere Khan.
