    The Jungle Book is a series of fables written about wild animals and a boy named Mowgli. Most of the short stories in the collection are about Mowgli, who wanders off into the Indian jungle while being pursued by a vicious tiger, Shere Khan. Shere Khan is lame and cannot catch Mowgli on his first attempt.

    The volume fluctuates way too much.

    The publisher needs to edit the audio track so that the volume does not fluctuate so much.

    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.

    The Jungle Book is a collection of stories, originally published in magazines in the late 1800s, that involve animals with anthropomorphic characteristics to convey moral lessons. The most famous of these stories involves a young Indian boy named Mowgli who was raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. He and his friends - Baloo, a sloth bear; and Bagheera, a black panther - go on many adventures, culminating in a fight with the jungle's bully, the tiger Shere Khan.

    "The Jungle Book" is a wonderful collection of stories by world famous English author Rudyard Kipling. The original publications contain illustrations, some by the author's father, John Lockwood Kipling. The tales in the book are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of Mowgli, an abandoned "man cub" who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle.

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.

    Sequel to The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. First published in 1895, it features five stories about Mowgli and three unrelated stories.

    I like Kipling, but...

    I found the sound quality of the reader quite uneven - fast, slow, dropping too quiet. It was not a comfortable listen.
