About This Book


Born a man; raised by wolves. Where does Mowgli belong? A human baby is saved from the jaws of a hungry tiger. Mother and Father Wolf accept it as their own; the angry tiger, Shere Khan, swears he will have his revenge. As little Mowgli grows up in the jungle of India, he feels safe and happy with his wolf brothers and sisters, Bagheera the black panther, and Baloo the bear. But his friends know the awful truth: the day will come when Mowgli will have to confront Shere Khan alone.
