    About Author

    1. Joseph Rudyard Kipling was a journalist, short story writer, poet, and novelist.Kipling s works of fiction include The Jungle Book 1894 , Kim 1901 , and many short stories, including The Man Who Would Be King 1888 His poems include Mandalay 1890 , Gunga Din 1890 , The Gods of the Copybook Headings 1919 , The White Man s Burden 1899 , and If 1910 He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story his children s books are classics of children s literature and one critic described his work as exhibiting a versatile and luminous narrative gift.Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the United Kingdom, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries Henry James said Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius as distinct from fine intelligence that I have ever known In 1907, at the age of 41, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date He was also sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, both of which he declined.Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907 in consideration of the power of observation, originality of imagination, virility of ideas and remarkable talent for narration which characterize the creations of this world famous author Kipling kept writing until the early 1930s, but at a slower pace and with much less success than before On the night of 12 January 1936, Kipling suffered a haemorrhage in his small intestine He underwent surgery, but died less than a week later on 18 January 1936 at the age of 70 of a perforated duodenal ulcer Kipling s death had in fact previously been incorrectly announced in a magazine, to which he wrote, I ve just read that I am dead Don t forget to delete me from your list of subscribers.

    The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story Comment

    1. I found this book at the children s section of the library, and was impressed that it said unabridged and that the language clearly hadn t been modernized at all I sort of missed the part of the title that stated, Mowgli s Story So yes, those three stories were unabridged, and also included the poems that introduce and end each story But it was not the complete and unabridged Jungle Books I read it to my 6 year old, who enjoyed both the stories and the illustrations, though he tuned out the poem [...]


    2. It s funny, I ve gone though my whole life thinking that I grew up with out reading The Jungle Book with the exception of the story Rikki Tikki Tavi, which I remember my mother reading to me one night But now having just finished reading aloud to my son the three Mowgli stories that comprise this edition gorgeously illustrated by Nicola Bayley , I know that at least I made an attempt One early scene has, I realize now, stayed with me always It s when Bagheera tells Mowgli that what separates him [...]




    3. although i was so eager to read it before starting, i still held a prejudice against the book, expecting an orientalist approach from the author, a british man lived when the empire s power was at its peak it later turned out to me that kipling was born and raised in india, so he wasn t a complete outsider and apparently he knew what he wrote about and proved me wrong in my biases to some extent view spoiler still there s room to argue that the ridiculation of spiritual beliefs of the villagers [...]


    4. I read an abridged Books version of the Jungle Books somewhere in grade school Later I have no idea when I read the full version of these episodic tales Then, I saw the Disney cartoon still haven t forgiven them for turning Kaa into a villain , which I actually like The book is less One Big Epic and a collection of short stories, the order of when they were written does not match the order of what happens when in Mowgli s life, though, read in order of when they were written, the tales do build [...]


    5. I liked this a great deal than Barrie s Peter Pan, largely because I loved the jungle s atmosphere It was so pensive and believable, and I appreciated how respectable the animals were In Peter Pan, I was disappointed when Neverland failed to come across as the whimsical and childishly innocent place I expected it to be, so I d definitely recommend Kipling s Disney counterpart over Barrie s This version only had the short stories featuring Mowgli, so I didn t get the whole scope of the narrative [...]



    6. I enjoyed it it was exciting, fun, and less horrifyingly orientalist than I had at first thought it might be.


    7. Este libro es bastante especial Y creo que todos los que tiene la editorial, pues me ha dado la oportunidad de leer tres relatos en los que estaba basada la m tica pel cula El libro de la selva , un peque o espacio de mi infancia Se nos presentan tres relatos El primero, c mo llego Mowgli a la manada de lobos, donde conoce a Bal y Baguira El segundo, c mo usa Mowgli la llamada de la selva El tercero, como Mowgli trata de derrotar a Shier Kan, el tigre que quer a matarlo cuando ea un beb.Siendo s [...]


    8. This is a childhood favorite, and for me at least, it stands up quite well Included here are only the Mowgli stories from The Jungle Book, taking him from his first arrival in the jungle as a toddler nearly killed by the tiger, Shere Khan, through to manhood Along the way, he has fantastic adventures and learns many life lessons Kipling was born in India, and later spent years there as a journalist, and he knew the land, its people, and its animals He was imperialistic and jingoistic, but that m [...]


    9. Definitely not the cutesy story re imagined by Disney, although it has many of the same elements.Baloo the bear teaches Mowgli essential survival skills not the silly bare necessities of the film Bagheera, the panther, and Ka, the python, are his lifelong friends and protectors The elephants are masters of destruction.Kipling succeeds in telling a compelling story of the advantages and disadvantages of life in the jungle it s not a cut and dry diatribe against civilization Watching Mowgli grow i [...]


    10. I missed the fact that this volume contains only the first three stories of The Jungle Book I m a gonna have to hunt down a version with all of them I read The Jungle Book multiple times when I was a kid, and apparently I retained very little of what I was reading These stories were unfamiliar The two things that really stood out to me in contrast with my memory was how Indian the book was I had forgotten that it was set in India and the character of Mowgli Perhaps I m too influenced by the movi [...]


    11. I had never read the classic Jungle book, I had only ever seen the Disney animated film, and did not imagine how different it could be, or that there are other stories that have nothing to do with Mowgli the man cub The stories are fantastic and, for lack of a better word, cute Kipling s storytelling is immersing and elegant, but it s hard to imagine these stories would appeal to young children, as heavy as they are with language and social context But I liked them, I feel that it s a classic wo [...]


    12. Nice illustrations Contains three stories from the jungle book and their framing poems That wasn t clear to me initially I know this is an important book, but it isn t for me As short as it was, it was a slog I love reading nineteenth century literature, but I thought the writing here was turgid and the dialogue pretty clunky Give me The Graveyard Book.


    13. I ve only ever grown up with the Disney version of this story so I was surprised to find out how different it was from the film I loved the writing style and I loved Mowgli s fearlessness Definitely worth a read.


    14. I enjoyed it much than I thought I would and was gripped by the story that I thought I knew so well from the film but found that it was different It also had beautifully drawn pictures.


    15. This Audible production was excellent It is not the Jungle Book in it s entirety but covers some of the adventures Great for in the car with the family.


    16. The name of the author is Rudyard Kipling He was an Indian writer, poet and also journalist The book is fiction It is adventure The book is about a kid who got abandoned by his parents He had to find his way through the jungle He has to go though many difficulties such as avoiding all the predators who are trying to eat his or capture him The central character is Mowgli He ends up finding people who are going to stick with him and protect him.I liked this book Some of the parts were quite scary [...]


    17. The Jungle Book Rudyard Kipling1894Children s Literature FictionCompiled and completed in 1894 by Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book is a book that portrays how humans should preserve and respect other species It also conveys how one should be courageous and brave even in times of deep trouble and danger The jungle book as the title suggest is about the life of a boy raised by wolves in the jungles of India Rudyard Kipling, the author of The Jungle Book, was an English writer of children s and adu [...]


    18. This book is all about The Law of the Jungle The Law of the Jungle says the following The Law of the Jungle, which never orders anything without a reason, forbids every beast to eat Man except when he is killing to show his children how to kill, and then he must hunt outside the hunting grounds of his pack or tribe The real reason for this is that man killing means, sooner or later, the arrival of white men on elephants, with guns, and hundreds of brown men with gongs and rockets and torches The [...]


    19. Must read classic, easy and quick readIt sounds superfluous to write anything about Rudyard Kipling s Jungle Book The book is a classic I had long nursed a desire to read the original unabridged version and was glad I chose this particular one, with illustrations by Nicola Bayley Bailey s illustrations, all made with color pencil, are outstanding The pages are colorful yet not gaudy with Indian art themed designs Very inviting.By his masterful rendering, Kipling takes the reader to the classic w [...]


    20. I swear that I wrote a review of this book previously Where did it go I enjoyed reading the story that I knew only through the Disney movie that my son loved when he was small My interest was futher piqued by reading The Tiger s Wife.This was a beautifully illustrated edition as well I need to remember this the next time I need to buy a children s book as a gift.Uncle Gerry wrote, when I told him I was reading The Jungle Book I am glad you discovered The Jungle Book Those wonderful stories of Mo [...]


    21. I gave the book 3 stars just for the sake of poetry I felt fooled and deceived by another so called classic This book was made, once, into one of my favorite cartoons that is why I was intrigued to read it and, hopefully, re connect with the past But, the real reason behind me reading this classic was the fact that Kipling, again, showed signs of imperialism in his work For those who are interested in history politics this literary work can be a good reference portrait of the British acquisition [...]


    22. En general es buen simo para que lo lea un ni o peque o de unos 7 a os Es muy pedag gico Mowgli es muy sincero, Bagheera y Baloo son muy exigentes con su educaci n, hay muchos miembros de la selva que no discriminan a Mowgli por ser distinto, ste lidia bien con la discriminaci n, etc salvo en las cinco ltimas p ginas, en las que Mowgli se muestra arrogante ya en exceso, es demasiado violento SPOILER abre en canal a un tigre y le saca la piel a tirones y no lucha por su vida, sino que mata por ve [...]


    23. people go on and on about Kipling being at worst an outright racist and at best an orientalist and colonialist, but I don t think I agree sure, he writes about the times and places he lived, but when reading to kids this can open up a discussion These stories are sad, funny and beautiful and like all great literature they are keenly observed, beautifully written portraits of traits that are all too human, despite being embodied in animal form The animals allow Kipling to present his own ideas of [...]


    24. It was a really enjoyable, really fast paced and really well written children s novel It had really beautiful illustrations, really memorable characters, really fast paced action, really exciting adventure, really great drama and great stories I m looking forward to read short stories of the Indian boy, Mowgli I m looking forward to seeing the new live action animated adaptation when it s coming to theaters on April 15 from Walt Disney Pictures I really recommend this book to both children and [...]


    25. I recommend this book to any age group Anyone who likes adventurous books should love this book so much This book is a classic book for at me at least This book was amazing and I recommend it to anyone for any age grouping.I loved this book than any movie version I would always watch the movie and I loved it so I thought I would read the book This book was amazing and greatly worded I loved this book This book is about Kaa the python his kidnapping by the Monkey People and his clash with the ev [...]


    26. This book contains poems and three unabridged stories about Mowgli, a little boy who is raised by the wolves as a man cub He learns the Law of the Jungle, gets kidnapped by the Monkey People, and fights the tiger, Shere Khan The Jungle Book is a great classic, and this version is especially wonderful because of the gorgeous full color illustrations by Nicola Bayley Both children and adults will find this book to be delightful.


    27. I d actually give this 3.5 stars it is a bit difficult to read and really isn t a kids book for early teens Some may disagree with it being a difficult read, but unless you re use to the style, it is difficult I say it s a teen book, not because of the life and death themes, but because of the social concepts of being an outcast and finding independence Not really concepts that are too familiar for most young readers.
