Transcript of The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book By Rudyard Kipling Summary This short story is a collection of tales set in the jungle. Many of the stories center around Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves. Mowgli's Story Mowgli is discovered in the jungle by a family of wolves, who decide to keep him and raise him. The wolf pack protects Mowgli from harm, and the Bear, Baloo, teaches him the laws of the jungle. At the climactic of the first story, Mowgli, who has grown up, saves the leader of his pack from Shere Khan, the tiger, using fire. The animals of the jungle call fire "the red flower." Mowgli then goes to live amongst humans and can never return to the jungle.

The rest of the book contains short stories about events that happened to Mowgli while he was growing up. Other Stories Besides the tale of Mowgli and the wolves, the Jungle Books contain other stories about animals in the jungle.
