"Walker Illustrated Classics" is a new series which brings together soem of the best-loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists. These exquisitely designed books, with their magnificent words and glorious pictures, are a pleasure to read - and re-read. The classics have never looked so good!First published over a century ago, these three stories about the man-cub Mowgli have delighted adults and children ever since. The stories tell of Mowgli's upbringing among the wolves; his lessons in the Law of the Jungle from Baloo the bear, Bagheera the black panther and Kaa the python; his kidnap by the Monkey People and his clash with the evil tiger, Shere Khan. Illustrated in ravishing full-colour and exquisite detail by award-winning artist Nicola Bayley, this is a book to treasure for ever.

From the Back Cover:

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.
