The Jungle Book
Mowgli's Story

author: Rudyard Kipling
illustrator: Nicola Bayley

First published more than a century ago, The Jungle Book’s seven stories and assorted poems about life in the Indian jungle have delighted countless readers ever since. Here, the three stories about man-cub Mowgli are presented in Kipling’s unabridged words — complete with the poems that frame each of the stories — and accompanied by stunning full-color illustrations by Nicola Bayley. The result is an exquisite classic to treasure for another century to come.

A sumptuous hardcover edition of Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale, beautifully illustrated in full color by award-winning artist Nicola Bayley.
