The
adventures of Mowgli, the young man raised by wolves in the jungles of
Central India, and his friends Baloo the bear, Bagheera the panther and Kaa
the python, as they face the arch villain Shere Khan the tiger, have become
so popular that they have achieved an almost mythical status throughout the
world. They were collected by Kipling in The Jungle Book and its sequel, The
Second Jungle Book, which also contain other stories set in India which
prominently feature animals, such as the well-known ‘Rikki-Tikki-Tavi’,
which describes the struggles of a mongoose against venomous cobras. Here
presented with brand-new illustrations by Ian Beck, these hugely popular
tales, inspired by ancient fables and Kipling’s own experiences in India,
form a vivid account of the relationship between humans and nature, and will
continue to inspire readers young and old.

Originally
told by Rudyard Kipling to his children at bedtime, The Just-So Stories, a
compendium of witty tales imagines how animals came to be as they are now.
Discover how the massive whale got a tiny throat by swallowing a mariner, how
the lazy camel got a hump so that he had no excuse not to work, and why the
leopard’s spots were painted on.Kipling’s imagination runs wild as he
creates charming origin stories that still enchant and delight children to
this day. This edition features Kipling’s iconic original
illustrations.

Kimball O’Hara, the orphaned son of an
Irish soldier, spends his childhood on the bustling streets of Lahore,
begging and running errands in order to survive. One day he meets an old
Tibetan lama, and he decides to accompany him on his travels across the
Indian subcontinent. After falling into the hands of his father’s old
regiment, however, Kim is separated from the lama and sent away to school.
There, his natural flair for espionage is spotted, and he is soon catapulted
among the majestic peaks of the Himalayas to play his part in the secret
service’s confrontation with Russia, the so-called “Great Game”. With
its peerless evocation of the teeming cities, breathtaking landscapes and
diverse cultures of late-nineteenth-century India, Kim is widely considered
to be Kipling’s masterpiece and one of the greatest novels written in the
English language.
