The Jungle Books Paperback / softback
Edited by W. W. Robson
Part of the Oxford World's Classics series
The Jungle Books can be regarded as classic stories told by an adult to children.
But they also constitute a complex literary work of art in which the whole of Kipling's philosophy of life is expressed in miniature.
They are best known for the `Mowgli' stories; the tale of a baby abandoned and brought up by wolves, educated in the ways and secrets of the jungle by Kaa the python, Baloo the bear, and Bagheera the black panther. The stories, a mixture of fantasy, myth, and magic, are underpinned by Kipling's abiding preoccupation with the theme of self-discovery, and the nature of the `Law'.
