In this most beloved of all books of animal stories you will read of the boy Mowgli, who when still a child, strayed from his village home, became lost in the deep forest, and there was sheltered and nursed with her own cubs by a mother wolf. You will come to know the snarling Bengal tiger, Shere Khan, and his mischief-making jackal servant, Tabaqui the Dish-Licker, and Baloo, the brown bear who taught the wolf cubs the law of the jungle; also Bagheera, the black panther, and Kaa, the big rock python, and many, many others.

You will read how Mowgli's human will proved more powerful than Shere Khan's jaws and claws; how Baloo and other forest friends rescued him when he had been carried off through the treetops by the monkey people; and how Mowgli finally went back to live among men, but with a better knowledge and understanding and respect for all of the creatures of the Animal Kingdom.

The delightful illustrations which have been drawn exclusively for the ILLUSTRATED JUNIOR LIBRARY will make this book a treasure every reader will enjoy for years to come.
