A continuation of The Jungle Book, these further adventures of Mowgli the man-cub and his animal companions are sure to delight listeners of all ages. Vibrant and crackling with intensity, these stories present Akela the wolf; Baloo the brown bear; Shere Khan, the boastful Bengal tiger who is Mowgli's enemy; Kaa the python; Bagheera the black panther; and Rikki-tikki-tavi the mongoose, among others. Kipling vividly describes the jungle world and its peculiar animals, richly evoking an Edenic environment. As Mowgli learns the Law of the Jungle among the animals, he matures into self-sufficiency and wisdom. "A pure outburst of genius."—New York Times
