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.

Christopher Paolini's love of fantasy and the natural beauty that surrounds his home in Montana inspired him to begin writing the Inheritance Cycle at fifteen. He became a number one bestselling author at nineteen and spent the next decade immersed in the world of Alagaësia. Also an accomplished artist, Christopher drew the interior art for the books. In his spare time he enjoys sharpening knives, playing video games, lifting heavy things and searching for the perfect leather-bound notebook.
