Description


"Nicola Bayley's framed full-page and inset illustrations do justice to the animals of the forest; each whisker or paw seems realistic enough to touch, yet she endows them with an intelligence that makes their communication with the human hero seem possible and probable." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

First published over a century ago, these three unabridged stories from THE JUNGLE BOOK about the man-cub, Mowgli, have delighted adults and children ever since. The stories tell of Mowgli's upbringing among the wolves; his lessons in the Law of the Jungle from Baloo the bear, Bagheera the black panther, and Kaa the python; his kidnapping by the Monkey People; and his clash with the evil tiger, Shere Khan. Illustrated in striking full color and exquisite detail by award-winning artist Nicola Bayley, this is a book to treasure forever.

About the Author


Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in India and spent his early childhood there. He was educated in England but returned to India in 1882 and began writing short stories and verse, before settling in England in his early twenties. The most famous writer of his time, he wrote many popular works for adults and children and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. THE JUNGLE BOOK was first published in 1894. Nicola Bayley is one of England's bestloved artists. She has illustrated many acclaimed picture books for children, including KATJE, THE WINDMILL CAT, by Gretchen Woelfle, which was short-listed for the Kate Greenaway Medal. She lives in London.
