The Jungle Book
Nobel Laureate Rudyard Kipling drew on his experiences growing up in British India to write this collection of fables. First published as a book in 1894, the stories of Mowgli, who was raised by wolves in the jungle, and Rikki Tikki Tavi, a wild mongoose that devoted himself to a human family, have been adapted several times to film, television, and other media. This cloth-bound version features beautiful foil stamping on the cover, and color illustrations throughout the book. It is a welcome addition to any home library and is sure to become a treasured title.
