About the Book

Into the Jungle: Stories for Mowgli

written by Katherine Rundell with illustrations by Kristjana S. Williams
Costa Children’s Book Award–winning author Katherine Rundell pens Kipling estate–approved JUNGLE BOOK origin stories.
 
This wise and witty companion to Rudyard Kipling’s 1894 classic is likewise a series of connected stories about the man-cub Mowgli and his adventures among the animals in the Indian jungle. It includes all the original favorites like Baloo and Bagheera and gives female characters, like Mother Wolf, a more prominent role in Mowgli’s upbringing. The timely theme of the possibility of understanding and empathy across species, cultures and genders will resonate with contemporary readers.
