    The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling is a story filled with advent

    The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling is a story filled with adventure and excitement. It follows the Mowglis growth and adventures within the jungle. It’s a classic story of good (Mowgli) verses evil (Shere Khan). Rudyard Kipling follows this conflict of good verses evil using the stories of Mowgli’s growth and adventures in the jungle. Mowgli was raised by a wolf pack and learned everything from them. The protection of the wolf pack represents society. Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther looked after Mowgli as well. They were always around when ever Mowgli needed them. Eventually the day had come when Mowgli had to leave the Wolf Pack to go live in a human village. Messua and her husband take in Mowgli. Messua and her husband both believed that Mowgli was their own son, who had been taken by a tiger years ago. Both Messua and her husband taught Mowgli their language and their way of life. Shortly after Mowgli lived with the humans he hears from one of the wolves in the wolf pack that trouble is coming his way. Mowgli never succeed in the Human village, he will always be a part of the jungle. After reading this book, Kipling makes you believe that animals are like humans. They are very smart and they have their own survival of life just like humans do. That is what makes this book so incredible. It takes you in to this whole other world that makes you believe some where in the jungle this is happening. It makes you think about the actual struggles animals have in real jungle life. This is an exciting book, which can be highly recommended.
