The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Although most of The Jungle Book is set in India - where Rudyard Kipling spent much of his early life - he actually wrote this beloved story collection in Vermont. The most famous of the bookโ€™s seven stories feature Mowgli, a boy raised by a wolf pack and mentored by head wolf Akela, who teaches his human charge to survive and even thrive in the jungle. But when Mowgli eventually finds himself in human company again, heโ€™s treated as an outsider and feared for his differences. Eventually, Mowgli uses his experiences to try and help the villagers and the animals co-exist in peace.

Many people got to know The Jungle Book through the Disney adaptation - and the storyโ€™s messages continue to be relevant today. More than just an all-ages adventure tale filled with talking animals, Kiplingโ€™s classic is a metaphor for acceptance and a touching exploration of themes of revenge, loyalty, and family.

Wow. Awful do not buy this trash even if it is free

Yes!. Ignore those ignorant blokes who say this book is rubbish! It's fantastic. I love the Disney movie and it's a real treat to see where it all came from. Superb. And it's free :)

A classic!!. This ageless classic is simple enough to intrigue a child, but it has symbolism and depth that will challenge the most careful of scholars.

The Jungle Book. Having seen the multiple adaptations by Disney (yet to see the version by Serkis) I decided to finally read it. Aside from the poem If, I donโ€™t recall reading anything directly by Kipling. I know Iโ€™ve read Rikki Tikki Tavi but an abridged version which is odd because itโ€™s already a short story. Only three of the stories deal with Mowgli. The others are all animal based with poems following. They often compliment the story and are briefly mentioned in them. Thereโ€™s a reason why Rudyard Kipling is considered a master of the English language. You can find out for yourself by reading this collection of stories.

This book was great.. This book is a book you need to read in chunks, but after you finish them, you're glad you took the time to read them. Don't read to small children!!!! EVER.

Timeless. One of the best

Just like the movie. This like awesome

The Jungle Book. Wonderful stories!

Ok. This book was good but it had some adult content or language in it, but overall it was ok.

AWFUL!!. I hated it it was long and boring.

Very good, but hard to understand just a little bit. I really enjoyed this book, however the language needs a second or two to understand.

The Jungle Book. Loved it

Ok boomer. Your a boomer your a boomer ok boomer ok boomer

Awesome. Yah, this book is amazing, read it out of curiousity and it was expertly put together and a nice change from the Disney movie. Loved both though!

Warning: only an Abridged version.. It was not the full book, a very short version of the masterpiece. I liked it, but feel, cheated. The full tale is far better.

Cool. Love it

The jungle book. I love the jungle book because i love the songs and i love manco. I also love the elephants marching

Excellent writing but incomplete version?. I enjoyed the writing & story but it seemed to end in the middle of......as if there were several chapters left to read. I had read some reviews before selecting which Jungle Book to read & at that I just guessed at which version to choose. I never knew that would be a problem. Certainly not by hundreds of pages! If I choose another version, will I read a more complete book or a whole different book? I think I'll just go to the book store for this one.

Jungle Book. Amazing. Disney only did first chapter and completely different story for kids. Glad I read it.

WOW. Review by Paris This book is AWESOME! THE BEST BOOK EVER! There are so many words to describe it WOW, AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, AWESOME, ADVENTUROUS, EXCITING, UNBELIEVABLE, SUPER, SUPERCALAFRAGALISTICALABEADOCIAS, WHOA,ETC.

Very Interesting. I loved this book it is very interesting and a little advanced

The Jungle Book. Enjoyed re-reading old favorites. Kipling uses great word pictures to describe India.

Terrible. Just terrible.

Only part 1 included. This is only part 1. There is a part two that is not included in this edition.

Great. It's awesome!

Missing. I love this story, but at least half of Mogli's story is missing. I have a rather old copy of this story, and the story of the war animals and the seals was not in it.

Amazing. It's so sad seeing so many ignorant kids reviewing this. Rudyard Kipling is an amazing author and wrote so many great stories into this. I really hate how so many people think of only the Disney version when the Jungle Book is mentioned (which is nothing like this book, at all). Great book, more people need to be reading this.

This will make you a little kid. This is a great book but it is very long ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Jungle talk. It is a very nice book to read but it has got three problems, one is that it has to many pages and that it has no pictures and that it isn't a free audiobook.

Ok. An ok book but has a few faults ...

Classic. This book is a treat

Good for free. Good ol classic

So good. I just love it and it is a great way to learn about the scouts

Biptgi. This book does not work don't click it it will stay on your iPod touch or iPhone even if you delete it

The jungle book. Superb story

The vividness of the characters will never fail to amaze. The vividness of the characters will never fail to amaze

Pretty good. Still Gucci

Jungle book. It was very long it was interesting ad fun my fav riot character was Mowgli he was so funny lol he made me laugh so thank you for letting me reading this book bye

A Classic!. You canโ€™t get any better than a masterpiece from Rudyard Kipling, Jungle Book is probably his best!

Classic. Haven't got the book on my iPad but I am reading the actual book it's interesting I haven't read it all but I think I know all the characters the only reason I wrote this was because I was bored there is not much to do in bed this isn't perfect but it's still a classic

T. I enjoyed that Modigliani belonged to the wolves ๐Ÿบ. I thought they were going to eat him

Jungle book. This book is very good I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and my family this book tells you what the story line with there tweaks I gave this a 4 star . To get the book up to a 5 star maybe he opening be interesting as it just says the charatars

Ti is a good book to reed. 1122

The jungle book. A great book, this was my first book from this app. Would definitely recommend this amazing book.

Book n that. Gud

It was alright. I didnโ€™t really like it bc I got bored so I just watched the movie and i know it wonโ€™t be the same but it was good enough

Ish. It wasn't that bad nor good either so that's y I give a 3!! sorry!!!

not that bad. it doesnโ€™t tell the exact story from the original book and film but it was entertaining recommended for those look for a fan fiction style story

Great book. The Jungle Books is a great book, really enjoyable.

I Love It!. I can't stop reading it easy to read and very well written. ๎…ˆ๎Œ๎€Ž๎—

Sohail. Quit good I put it as three stars๎Œต๎Œต๎Œต

Amazeballs. Amazeballs XD

Rubbish. It was an old classic but now it's just absolutely rubbish

If. If you haven't read this book then please find time to do so. It's amazing to read Kipling's observations of human and animal behaviour especially during that era . It evokes the Far East and the lifestyle of those both native and foreign. Remarkable observation and narration. I knew of Jungle book and knew some of the characters and promised myself I would read it all one day. Make yourself the same promise...and keep it.

JOLLY GOOD. JOLLY GOOD

Amazing. Very good book

Good but could be better. It's a good book but in a lot of places it's extremely long and can get boring

Jungle book. This book is ok to read but I would prob only read it a couple of times

Wow!. Awesome! :D

Dont waste your time. I guess it was a nice book back in last century, but it is absolutely horrible now. TBH, I dont think it was about the law of jungle, rather it's law of human. Iโ€™m not sure if someone feels the same, but the anthropocentrism make me sick so I swear Iโ€™ll never open this book again. I stopped at page 100 and just canโ€™t keep reading it. Just think about it, by what right does a 10-year-old human child have the power to scare off all other creatures through a stare in the eye?

Absolutely amazing. I loved the book I give this a 1000000 stars I am 10 and love this. You should 5 star if good

Loved it! (Especially Bagheera). I think itโ€™s an amazing book. My favourite character is definitely Bagheera. I think the people complaining that you have to read it instead of listening to it should really just get a brain because are you kidding me? The whole point of a book is to read it! That really annoys me. Anyway, itโ€™s a really great book and Bagheera is the best.

Bad. Rubbish book wast of time ๐Ÿ˜ 

The jungle book. Good read

Jungle book. I love the book it was like the film
