The Jungle Book
  • The Jungle Book

  • A collection of four Puffin Classics, designed to raise awareness of world environmental issues.

    The classic story of friendship between man and beast. Young Mowgli escapes the vicious jaws of the growling tiger Shere Khan, and is adopted by Father Wolf. As he grows up, Baloo the Bear and Bagheera the Panther teach Mowgli the Law of the Jungle, and so his extraordinary adventures begin . . .

    The adventures of Rikki Tikki Tavi the snake-fighting mongoose, little Toomai and the elephant's secret dance, and Kotick the white seal are all part of Mowgli's extraordinary journey with his animal friends.

    Challenged by the struggle for survival in the depths of the rainforest, this special edition of The Jungle Book is inspired by Earth Day, and introduced by actor and environmental activist Bonnie Wright.
