The Jungle Book is a collection of short stories written by the Indian-born Englishman Rudyard Kipling and published in 1894.

The first eight stories of the book follow a single linear storyline that follows a young married couple who lose their baby in the woods of India while fleeing from an attack by a huge and dangerous Bengal tiger named Shere Khan.

A pack of wolves saves the baby from death at the hands of Shere Khan and raises him in his cave. The adoptive wolf mother, Raksha, calls him Mowgli which means 'frog', due to the fact that the baby has no hair.

The book has been made into a movie on several occasions, the most popular adaptation being that made by Disney in 1966. This adaptation, being aimed at a children's audience, presents great differences with respect to Rudyard Kipling's book.

The Jungle Book is the first volume of the The Jungle Book Series
