The year 1893 saw the birth of the wonderful Mowgli stories with a short tale "In the Rukh" where Kipling told for the first time of the adult Mowgli, with an allusion to his childhood amongst wolves and the following year saw the publication of the first "Jungle Book". There is a unique magic in the "Jungle Book" stories which has enthralled successive generations of children. Baloo, Bagheera, Kaa and Shere Khan are just a few of the unforgettable characters that have become part of so many childhood memories. These stories represent the best of Kipling's imaginative genius, and undoubtedly set him amongst the great writers of all time.
