The Jungle Book was written by Rudyard Kipling. The story revolves around the adventures of an abandoned ‘man cub’ Mowgli. Mowgli is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle with the help of Baloo the bear and Bagheera the black panther, and then has to fight the tiger Shere Khan. When the wolves hear that the fierce tiger, Shere Kahn, is nearby, they decide to send Mowgli to a local ‘man tribe’.
During the time Mowgli was with the wolf pack, he is abducted by the Bandar-log monkeys to the ruined city. Baloo and Bagheera set out to rescue him with Kaa the python. Kaa defeats the Bandar-log, frees Mowgli, and hypnotises the monkeys and the other animals with his dance. Mowgli rescues Baloo and Bagheera from the spell.
