'I have never seen a man's cub,' said
Mother Wolf. 'Bring him here. How little he is! And
not afraid at all!'
Before long the man's cub becomes Mother Wolf's favourite.
He is given the name Mowgli ¡X
'Little Frog' in the language of the wolves. He spends
his days playing with his four wolf-brothers, and learning
about the Law of the Jungle from Baloo, the old brown
bear, and Bagheera, the black panther.
But Mowgli is in danger. Shere Khan, the bad-tempered
old tiger, hates him and wants to kill him. How can
Mowgli, who is only a child, fight against the tiger?
And where does Mowgli really belong ¡X in the jungle
with his friends, or in the world of men?
Rudyard Kipling was an Englishman
who lived and worked in India about one hundred years
ago. His stories about Indian village life and the animals
of the jungle are loved all over the world.
