Synopsis

Award-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen offers his stunning version of another classic: Rudyard Kipling's beloved stories of the boy Mowgli, rescued and raised by tigers in the heart of the jungle. The tales feature such unforgettable creatures such as Bagheera, the graceful black panther; Baloo, the kindly brown bear; and Kaa, the snake with the hypnotic stare. In addition, this timeless collection includes other favorites, such as “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi,” “The White Seal,” and “Toomai of the Elephants.”
