Meet the Author

Rudyard Kipling (30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was an English novelist, poet, and short-story writer, and novelist. He is famous for his books for children.

He was born in Bombay, in the Bombay Presidency of British India, and was taken by his family to England when he was five years old. Kipling is best known for The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888); and his poems, including Mandalay (1890), Gunga Din (1890), The White Man's Burden (1899) and If— (1910). He is regarded as a major "innovator in the art of the short story"; his children's books are enduring classics of children's literature; and his best works are said to exhibit "a versatile and luminous narrative gift".

He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.
