First published in 1893, Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book is considered a masterpiece in the genre of children's literature and short story writing. The book is composed of seven tales, each one with an accompanying poem. The first three tales, and perhaps the most famous, tell the story of the jungle boy Mowgli, and includes a cast of such familiar characters as the black panther Bagheera, the wise brown bear Baloo, and the ruthless tiger Shere Khan. The other four tales each tell the story of a different animal, such as the travels of the white seal Kotick; the battle between the courageous mongoose Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and the deadly cobra Nag; Toomai and the elephant dance; and lastly, the camp animals of the queen's guard. The second in Harper Design's newest series of deluxe reimagined children's classics, this new unabridged gift edition takes readers into the heart of the jungle with specially commissioned artwork and ten exclusive interactive features.
