“The colourist have a queen and her name is Johanna Basford” (New York Magazine)”The Jungle Book was one of those rare books that I felt I was actually living as I read it” (Michael Morpurgo)”Loved by children and adults alike” (Daily Mail)”The Just So Stories and The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling have always held a fascination for me” (HRH Prince of Wales)”Rudyard Kipling laid the foundations of modern children’s literature with works such as The Jungle Book… wild, magnificent stories that felt as though they’d always existed, stories people might have told each other in the caves” (Daily Telegraph) –This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition. My senior year in high school, I took a test on “A Tale of Two Cities,” a book I had somehow failed to read. What I had read, years before, was the Classics Illustrated version–read it so often that I had the story pretty much by heart. I aced the test…… Classics Illustrated taught me the value of good stories that I otherwise would not have read at all…… children are more ruthless about what they consider entertaining. They don’t love books because they think they should. They love stories that deliver, and Classics Illustrated always had the goods. Looks like it still does. –This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Among Kipling’s best-known works are The Jungle Book, Just So Stories, and the poems “Mandalay” and “Gunga Din.” Kipling was the first English-language writer to receive the Nobel Prize for literature (1907) and was among the youngest to have received the award.

The tales in the original Jungle Book (and also those in The Second Jungle Book which followed in 1895, and which includes five further stories about Mowgli) are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families and communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or “heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle.” The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned ‘man cub’ Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. The most famous of the other stories are probably “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi”, the story of a heroic mongoose, and “Toomai of the Elephants”, the tale of a young elephant-handler. –This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition. Jungle Book and comics.A comic book series Petit d’homme (“Man Cub”) was published in Belgium between 1996 and 2003. Written by Crisse and drawn by Marc N’Guessan and Guy Michel, it resets the stories in a post-apocalyptic world in which Mowgli’s friends are humans rather than animals: Baloo is an elderly doctor, Bagheera is a fierce African woman warrior and Kaa is a former army sniper. DC Comics used some of the characters and settings of the Jungle Book in one of its Elseworlds stories, featuring the infant Superman in place of Mowgli and taking the name K’l’l. Bagheera, Akela, and Shere Khan all make appearances, as does Kipling himself, who has the story of ‘K’l’l of the Wolves’ dictated to him by a British man who tells the entirety of the story in flashback. Khan remains the evil force he has been depicted as in the original story, and is slain outright by K’l’l in a head-on confrontation after Akela is maneuvered into missing his kill and Khan attempts to take over the pack. The character is later given the civilized name of ‘Clark’ by Lois Lane, and is captured along with his friends, and used for profit by Lex Luthor, who is also eventually slain. –This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
