"The Jungle Book" is a collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling. The tales in the book are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned "man cub" Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is preceded by a piece of verse, and succeeded by another.

1. "Mowgli's Brothers": A boy is raised by wolves in the Indian Jungle with the help of Baloo the bear and Bagheera the black panther, and then has to fight the tiger Shere Khan.

2. "Hunting-Song of the Seeonee Pack"

3. "Kaa's Hunting": This story takes place before Mowgli fights Shere Khan. When Mowgli is abducted by monkeys, Baloo and Bagheera set out to rescue him with the aid of Chil the Kite and Kaa the python.

4. "Road Song of the Bandar-Log"

5. "Tiger! Tiger!": Mowgli returns to the human village and is adopted by Messua and her husband who believe him to be their long-lost son Nathoo. But he has trouble adjusting to human life, and Shere Khan still wants to kill him.

6. "Mowgli's Song"

7. "The White Seal": Kotick, a rare white-furred Northern fur seal, searches for a new home for his people, where they will not be hunted by humans.

8. "Lukannon"

9. "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi": Rikki-Tikki the mongoose defends a human family living in India against a pair of cobras. This story has also been published as a short book.

10. "Darzee's Chant"

11. "Toomai of the Elephants": Toomai, a ten-year old boy who helps to tend working elephants, is told that he will never be a full-fledged elephant-handler until he has seen the elephants dance.

12. "Shiv and the Grasshopper"

13. "Her Majesty's Servants": On the night before a military parade a British soldier eavesdrops on a conversation between the camp animals.

14. "Parade-Song of the Camp Animals" parodies several well-known songs and poems.
