The tales in the book (and also those in The Second Jungle Book which followed in 1895, and which includes five further stories about Mowgli) are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons.
One of the best

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.
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.
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 book was good but it had some adult content or language in it, but overall it was ok.
I loved this book it is very interesting and a little advanced
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.
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.
