The Jungle Books
The Jungle Books | Rudyard Kipling
The story of the man-cub Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle, guided by his mentors Baloo the bear, Bagheera the black panther and the ancient python Kaa, and who confronts his arch-enemy Shere Khan the tiger, is one of the greatest literary myths ever created. Mowgli's adventures are juxtaposed with other animal stories set in the British Empire, ranging from the heroic battle of 'Rikki-tikki-tavi' and the Himalayan pastoral 'Purun Bhagat' to the drama of survival in 'The White Seal'. With The Jungle Books Rudyard Kipling drew on ancient beast fables, Buddhist philosophy and memories of his Anglo-Indian upbringing to create a rich, symbolic portrait of man and nature, and an eternal classic of childhood that has had a lasting impact on our imaginations.Part of a series of new editions of Kipling's works in Penguin Classics, this volume contains a General Preface by Jan Montefiore and an introduction by Kaori Nagai discussing the many imperial, Indian and literary contexts of The Jungle Books.

#manicmonday @JoScho
1) Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling🐵🐆
2) one cat called Marmalade🐱
3) I can't pick just one... penguin, sloth, coatimundi, tiger and peregrine falcon are my top 5 🐅🐧🦅
4) a Falcon, I'd be able to fly and I'd feel like a badass 🦅

JoScho Marmalade is an awesome cat name 💕 2y

Just picked up this book today! I'll probably ruin my childhood vision of The Jungle Book but that's what growing up is all about, right? #TheJungleBook

Well, I loved some of the stories (this is a book of short stories-I never knew that) but others bored me to sleep. The stories I loved were all the Mowgli stories as well as Rikki Tikki Tavi and The White Seal get five stars but the others between 2 & 3 so it‘s very hard to rate it as a whole...

A little on the nose for #welcometothejungle, I guess 😜. Managed to get a picture with Ninja, who I imagine wants to return to the jungle.

#FallIntoBooks #day2 #BookRainbow I think my Word Cloud Classics make a pretty book rainbow 🌈 I love that they come in such bright colours, plus not only the embossed words on the cover but the cute embossed symbol on the spine that matches the story. I can't wait to add more to my collection!

DrJAdMerricksson What a lovely collection! 2y

I tried, but other than the stories I was already familiar with, I did not like this. How disappointing because I had high hopes for it. #welcometothejungle

Since I already owned this as an audiobook my #welcometothejungle readalong is slightly different. I'm not very far into this but I'm already hooked. The audiobook narrator is really good & he makes the text sounds much more lyrical than I think it would seem to me if I read a hard copy or Serial Reader format.

Daisey I can see how this would be really great on audio. I'm enjoying reading it more than I expected! 3y
Theresa @Daisey I am too! I was only familiar with the Disney animated movie, which I love, so I didn't know what to expect from the book. 3y
jpmcwisemorgan Oh maybe I'll try the audio sometime! 3y

Abby-J If you have to skip reading classics, the ones with colonialist overtones seem like a good choice to toss out. 😉 3y

I just started reading the Jungle Books!! I have been wanting to read these for years but was recently inspired by the new live action Jungle Book movie to finally read them. It is a timeless story, one that I have loved ever since I saw Disney's animated version when I was 3. Read and Enjoy!!!!!!!!
