THE JUNGLE BOOK
By Rudyard Kipling
Manga Classics presents our manga adaptation of The Jungle Book! Manga Classics brings to life Rudyard Kipling's original collection of short stories in this fantastic collection. Heavily influenced by his childhood in British-ruled India, Kipling created some of the most well-read children’s stories in Western Culture. Book One of The Jungle Book(s) includes Mowgli’s Brothers, the story of Mowgli, the abandoned man-cub who was raised by animals in the Indian jungle, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi the heroic mongoose, and Toomai of the Elephants, the tale of a young elephant-handler, and in The White Seal, we meet Kotick, a rare white-furred northern fur seal as he searches for a home where his family will not be hunted by humans. Originally published as a series of short stories for magazines in the late 1800s, the Nobel Prize-winning Rudyard Kipling would eventually publish the classic The Jungle Book in 1894.
