Great read
I never read the full book before, though I was familiar with the story. The actual books is amazing. Such a wonderful story and some of the stuff lost in the children's stories is what
makes this such a good read. I love the mother wolf's response to Shere Khan in the beginning! I definitely recommend reading it to anyone that enjoys the adventure fiction. 

Horriable book

About the author (2005)

Nobel prize-winning writer Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India, but returned with his parents to England at the age of five. Influenced by experiences in both India and England, Kipling s stories celebrate British imperialism and the experience of the British soldier in India. Amongst 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 amongst the youngest to receive the award. Kipling died in 1936 and is interred in Poets Corner in Westminster Abbey.
