The Jungle Book - Review

The Jungle Book
by Rudyard Kipling
Genre: Children, Classic

     Surprisingly, this book contains more than the story of little Mowgli that Disney chose to portray in the animated classic movie of the same title. This is actually a collection of short stories that revolve around an assortment of animals.

     The second story tells the tale of a white seal who stumbles across he horrors of man slaughtering seals and eventually leads his kin to a safe haven, far from man.

     The third story is about the famous Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a mongoose who saves his adopted human family from the evils of deadly snakes.

     There are other stories that follow, and in all honesty, this was quite an enjoyable book once I muddled my way through Mowgli's tale, which I found to be quite boring and pointless.
