Peter Jeffrey reads three of Rudyard Kipling's original classic short stories. Abandoned in the Indian jungle and rescued by a wolf pack, the man-cub Mowgli is educated in the ways of the jungle by Akela the Wolf, Baloo the Bear, Bagheera the Black Panther and Kaa the big Rock Python. They teach him to hunt and protect him from Shere Khan, the ever-present Bengal Tiger. As Mowgli grows up, the powers of pack leader Akela wane and Shere Khan persuades the younger wolves to attack the man-cub. However, Mowgli has been told by Bagheera to learn the secret of the Red Flower from the nearby man village, which he can use to protect himself from the tiger. Meanwhile, Shere Khan isn't the only animal with designs on Mowgli. The monkeys want him for their leader, and will even resort to kidnapping him! Includes three complete and unabridged stories: 'Mowgli’s Brothers', 'Kaa's Hunting' and 'Tiger! Tiger!'. This recording was previously released on cassette as 'Mowgli Stories'.

Raised by a pack of wolves, the little boy known as Mowgli forms the human heart of an animal community in the Indian wilderness. These selections from The Jungle Book, The Second Jungle Book, and Many Inventions offer a chronological presentation of every episode from Rudyard Kipling's beloved tales of a feral child. This edition of the stories, all except one of which were originally published in magazines in 1893 and 1894, includes the charming epigrammatic poems that appeared in the first compilations.
The adventures begin with "Mowgli's Brothers," in which the orphan is rescued from the wrath of Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger. Upon his adoption into the wolf pack, Mowgli is schooled in the Law of the Jungle by Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. Eight additional tales trace the boy's growing knowledge of jungle lore as well as his moral development and return to human society. Kipling's powerfully original fables, recounted in richly evocative prose, continue to enchant readers of all ages.
Dover (2015) unabridged republication of stories from The Jungle Book (1894), The Second Jungle Book (1895), and Many Inventions (1893), all published by The Macmillan Company, London.

Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) is best remembered for children's tales such as The Jungle Book as well as his poetry and stories about British soldiers in India, which include "Gunga Din" and The Man Who Would Be King. Kipling was enormously popular at the turn of the twentieth century but his reputation declined with the change in attitude toward British imperialism. In recent years Kipling's works have found new acclaim as a vibrant source of literary and cultural history.
