The Originals: The Jungle Book & The Second Jungle Book - Om Books

The strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
British writer Rudyard Kipling’s beloved classic The Jungle Book (1894) and The Second Jungle Book (1895) mainly feature animals. These stories were first published in magazines from 1893 to 1894, accompanied by illustrations, some created by Kipling’s father, John Lockwood Kipling.
The central character of The Jungle Book is a little boy or “man cub” named Mowgli who is raised in the jungle by a pack of wolves. Kipling gifts the readers a memorable cast of characters, which includes Baloo the bear and Shere Khan the tiger who play a major role in Mowgli’s life. Mowgli’s stay in the jungle and his journey to the village reveal the laws of the natural world and the complicated machinery of the man-made one.
Packed with fun and adventure as well as insightful moral lessons, The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book remain favourites of both children and adults all over the world.

British writer Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) was born in Mumbai, India and educated in England. He returned to India in 1882 to live with his parents. Kipling’s experiences during his stay in India inspired him to write and publish several short stories. These were featured in his collection titled Plain Tales From the Hills (1888), which became very popular in England. Kipling also published a second collection of short stories titled Wee Willie Winkie (1888), and American Notes (1891), which featured his first impressions of America. Amongst Kipling’s bestselling books are The Jungle Book (1894) and The Second Jungle Book (1895). The prolific author was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907 for “originality of imagination, virility of ideas, and remarkable talent for narration” which characterise his creations.
