This book is the best assembly and compilation of the Jungle Books, which were not necessarily written in chronolgical order of the story events, that I have found. Mowgli, meaning naked frog presents himself as the Christ Child bourne in a manger and presented as the holder and keeper of Jungle Law. Kaa the Python, Hathi the Elephant, Baloo the Bear, and Bageerah the Panther, all marshal soldier and advise this child king of the wilds at nation building and holding against the Anti Christ, a daenon in the form of the Tiger Sher Khan. The Seeonee wolf clan are his brethren and like Romulus he is put to the test insofar as much that no wolf can dethrone him from the ascension after the dying Alpha leader, Akela. I cannot do the book justice for it is the Bible of the Oxford school and the Scouts of William Baden Powell, down the line beyond J.R.R. Tolkein, Frank Herbert, Lewis Carol and lo and behold Sting of the Police and onward. The book has been used as a military treatise as to the way of the Continental Soldier of Britian and as a study and meditation into the cosmic and eartly forces of nature. Some of my favorites are: The Day Fear Came, Red Dog, Riki Tiki Tavi, The Song of the Seeonee pack (insert King Solomon), and Jungle Law. This is some of the greatest prose ever written in the English language. Son of Kaa he bespeaketh upon this matter hsssssss.

I had read the Jungle Books a while back and enjoyed the stories then. I have recently re-read the 'Books' and found I like them better the second time around. I found this to be one of the true classics of english literature on it's own, but with the Barnes and Noble Classic Series the insight into the author and his world really bring the book to life.

This is a book i would give as a college graduation gift to a guy. It has a wonderful storyline. To me it was an allegory using animals as the representation for a human. It was adventurous, it was funny and i was able to relate with this story. I would highly recomend this book to anyone really. This is a must have for any library.
