A collection of stories about life in the jungle that explores themes such as law, freedom, duty, loyalty and honour.
Most famous for the story of Mowgli, a young boy abandoned in the jungle and raised by wolves, the book contains multiple fables about various animals such as Baloo the bear and Shere Khan the tiger.
As the animals are able to obey the "law of the jungle" without question, but Mowgli is controlled by his desires, fears and other human aspects, there is an underlying moral question about proper behaviour and the place of humanity in the world.
