Overview

Rudyard Kipling's Children's Omnibus, including (unabridged): The Jungle Book, The Second Jungle Book, Just So Stories, Puck of Pook's Hill, The Man who would be King, Kim, Captain's Courageous by Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Kipling is a master storyteller and these books are classics that should be in every library. The two Jungle Books are collections of short stories about the adventures of Mowgli, Baloo and Bagheera - now made famous by Disney. The Just-So stories are about why animals are the way they are and Puck of Pook's Hill is a beautiful collection of short stories and poems. The three novels: The Man who would be King, Kim, Captain's Courageous are also included, "Kim" being thought to be the pinnacle of Kipling's writing. These stories are for teenagers or adults - they are coming of age books, stories of boys in their teens who learn to be men.
