The Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling

The Jungle BooksThe Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling

I’m sure we all know The Jungle Book, which Disney has made so popular with it’s rendition (although it does not follow the book, but the basics are there), but…there is more in this book than what Disney portrays.

The Jungle Books does include the story of Mowgli and his eventual return to mankind, but it also includes the tale of Kotick, the white seal, Rikki-tikki-tavi, the mongoose, Little Toomai of the Elephants, and the animals of the Amir’s parade.

Each is interesting in their own way and Rudyard Kipling does indeed know how to tell a tale which makes them all the more enjoyable.
