In the jungles of India, a pack of wolves discover a young boy. They name the boy Mowgli and protect him against dangers, including Shere Khan, the most savage tiger in the jungle. As Mowgli grows up, he learns the ways of the jungle from Bagheera the panther, the wise bear, Baloo, and other animals. Soon, he must decide whether to remain among beasts or embrace his own kind.

The stories feature Mowgli, a foundling raised in the Seeonee hills of India by a pack of wolves, a wise black panther named Bagheera, and a gruff but lovable bear called Baloo. The books also include the beloved tale of the mongoose “Rikki-tikki-tavi,” “The White Seal,” and many more. These stories helped confirm Rudyard Kipling as one of the greatest children’s authors of any era, as well as one of the greatest writers and poets in the English language.
The Jungle Book (1894) is a collection of stories by English author Rudyard Kipling. The stories were first published in magazines in 1893-94. The original publications contain illustrations, some by the author's father, John Lockwood Kipling. Kipling was born in India and spent the first six years of his childhood there. After about ten years in England, he went back to India and worked there for about six-and-a-half years. These stories were written when Kipling lived in Naulakha, the home he built in Dummerston, Vermont (just north of Brattleboro), in the United States. There is evidence that the collection of stories was written for his daughter Josephine, who died in 1899 at six years of age by pneumonia; a rare first edition of the book with a poignant handwritten note by the author to his young daughter was discovered at the National Trust's Wimpole Hall in Cambridgeshire in 2010.The tales in the book (as well as 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." Other readers have interpreted the work as allegories of the politics and society of the time. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of Mowgli, an abandoned "man cub" who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. The most famous of the other four stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, and "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is followed by a piece of verse.The Second Jungle Book is a sequel to The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. First published in 1895, it features five stories about Mowgli and three unrelated stories, all but one set in India, most of which Kipling wrote while living in Vermont. All of the stories were previously published in magazines in 1894-5, often under different titles. The original book is now worth $3.4 million.

Der berühmte Autor des «Dschungelbuchs», Rudyard Kipling, hat diese Tiergeschichten ursprünglich seinen Kindern Josephine, Elsie und John zum Einschlafen erzählt, bevor sie dann 1902 unter dem Titel «Just So Stories For Little Children» in London erschienen. «Just so» im Sinne von «genauso (und nicht anders)», weil seine Tochter Josephine wieder gänzlich wach zu werden drohte, wenn er etwas wegließ. Auf originelle und ironische Weise werden kindliche Warum-Fragen zum Ausgangspunkt für die abenteuerlichsten Erklärungen, wie etwa das Kamel zu seinem Höcker kam, warum der Elefant so einen langen Rüssel hat und wie das Alphabet entstand. Kipling, auch ein begabter Zeichner, steuerte zu der Buchausgabe auch eigene Illustrationen bei. Unsere Ausgabe folgt der ersten deutschen Übersetzung unter dem Titel «Nur so Märchen» aus dem Jahre 1903 von Sebastian Harms.

1893. The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book in One Volume. Kipling, English short-story writer, novelist and poet, who celebrated the heroism of British colonial soldiers in India and Burma, was the first Englishman to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. These books contain the classic tale of the young boy, Mowgli, who, after becoming lost in the jungles of India is adopted by a family of wolves. The story follows Mowgli through the jungle and his adventures with other animals who live in the jungle, like Kaa the snake. Mowgli's story is also interspersed with other tales of the jungle, such as Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, lending depth and diversity to our understanding of Kipling's India. In much the same way Mowgli is carried away by the Bandar-log monkeys, young readers will be caught up by the stories, swinging from page to page, breathless, thrilled, and terrified.
