Gist   -------
When the Jungle book is mentioned most people think of the Disney animated film. This actually has very little to do with the stories of Rudyard Kiplling as Walt Disney only took the basic idea of anthropomorphic jungle animal and transform them in to lovable children characters. Best known for the Mogli stories Rudyad Kipling’s the jungle book expertly interweaves myth, morals, adventure and powerful story-telling set in central India Mowgli his raised by a pack of Wolves along the way he encounters memorable characters such as the foreboding tiger Sher Khan, Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear in cluding other stories such as the of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a heroic mongoose and Toomai, a young elephant handler, Kipling’s fables remain as popular today a s they ever were.
