    It was seven o'clock on a very warm evening in the Seeonee hills when Father Wolf woke up from his day's rest, scratched himself, yawned, and spread out his paws, one after the other, to get rid of the sleepy feeling in their tips. Mother Wolf lay with her big gray nose dropped across her four tumbling, squealing cubs, and the moon shone into the mouth of the cave where they all lived.

Kipling's magnetic, vivid descriptions of both the fierce and gentle aspects of the jungle are gathered here in a second collection of tales, along with the further adventures of Mowgli, the wolf-child.
