The great panther leaped as a kitten leaps at a dead leaf...landed noiselessly and leaped again and again, while the half purr, half growl gathered head as steam rumbles in a boiler. Kipling's magnetic, vivid descriptions of both the fierce and gentle aspects of the jungle are gathered here in a second collection of tales, along with the further adventures of Mowgli, the wolf-child. The stories included are: How Fear Came, The Law of the Jungle, The Miracle of Purun Bhagat, A Song of Kabir, Letting in the Jungle, Mowgli's Song Against People, The Undertakers, A Ripple Song, The King's Ankus, The Song of the Little Hunter, Quiquern, Angutivun Tina, Red Dog, Chil's Song, The Spring Running, and The Outsong.

Listener Opinions

    " If it suffers at all it's only in unfai comparison to the incomparable first volume. A great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Mitchell | 2/13/2014

    " The second volume of Jungle Book stories by Rudyard Kipling is at the very least equal to the first. Together they make up my favourite of all Kipling's writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dillon | 1/8/2014

    " This book is a little heavier and more deep than the first Jungle Book. I enjoyed it as much as I did the first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 1/6/2014

    " I would give the stories about Mowgli a 3+ or maybe even a 4. But the other random stories in there were just ok - so it averages out to a 3. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brody Lee | 12/26/2013

    " it was good but it was boring at most parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neil Davies | 12/8/2013

    " Not quite as entertaining as the first collection of stories. There's no doubt that the Mowgli stories are the best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucy | 12/7/2013

    " There's no doubt, Kipling is a writer of excellent prose, and the ideas behind the Jungle Book stories (in this book especially, the defeat of the Red Dogs - wow), so why only three stars? Actually, because I just don't like Mowgli..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Clemons | 11/21/2013

    " The Jungle books are amazing! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sallie | 11/18/2013

    " Interesting. Each chapter skips from Mowgli to another tale, then back to Mowgli and so forth. I didn't really understand the ending, it was old English. But an interesting book, overall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kandice | 8/21/2013

    " Not as good as the first. Maybe because I was so much older when I read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sofia Gonçalves | 6/3/2013

    " In this second jungle book, we can rey, read more about Maugli, as he is growing. Actually, all of the characters passes throught an aging process. Althought it has less India magic, I can say I liked more this book, because of the adventures of Maugli, and the jungles Law. :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Willow | 4/13/2013

    " horrible book...didn't like it at all!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blaine Moore | 12/2/2012

    " Unlike the first jungle book, I enjoyed the stories of Mowgli more than the independent stories in this book, and it was a satisfying end to how Mowgli's life was led. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karlie Nyte | 10/29/2012

    " I enjoy the first JB immensely. This one is all right. No real need to read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alissa | 9/29/2012

    " A great storey for children that can be enjoyed by adults. This is a continuation of the life of Mowgli, the young orphan boy who was raised by wolfs. There are many adventures with his lovable animal friends & life lessons as he learns the Laws of the jungle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kam-Yung Soh | 9/22/2012

    " More wonderful jungle stories by Kipling, most featuring Mowgli but all equally fascinating to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clarissa | 8/8/2012

    " I didn't like this as much ad the first. True Mowgli is older so the tales were much darker. I think my main problem was there should've been more Mowgli stories. To me that's what The Jungle Book is. Not the other stories. & the last of the Mowgli stories left me feeling disappointed & flat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 2/1/2012

    " I am unsure that I have ever this, all the way through; my first reading was a different edition, as a child. These stories are classic must-reads "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/6/2012

    " A worthy follow-up to the first book, including more tales of Mowgli as he grows older. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian | 9/28/2011

    " Read when I was a young teen - captivating then. Remains a prized book on my shelf. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 8/7/2011

    " i loved the continuation of the mowgli stories. i thought it was fascinating to read about the other animals or people in the rest of the book too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Serge | 5/18/2011

    " This book remind me my chilhood "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie | 4/20/2011

    " I know these stories by heart, almost! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 4/19/2011

    " Re-reading again after over 50 years. Very enjoyable and realaxing read. I enjoyed some of the stories other than the ones about Mowgli and Rikki Tikki Tavi, but I still skipped the story about the seal. Maybe I'll finish it in another 50 years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristine | 4/3/2011

    " Not quite what I expected, but good nontheless. All I had to go on was the Disney cartoon. Lots of short stories, with some about other "people" than Mowgli. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maddy Kay :) | 3/29/2011

    " Finally! I'm done!! Hated that book :P "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 3/18/2011

    " If you want to make your pal Mike cry- read him the passage where Mowgli decides to leave the jungle and rejoin the ManPack. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Siobhan | 3/12/2011

    " Read this because it's one of the classics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 3/10/2011

    " Such a fun book. I've decided to put Kipling near the top of my "must read" books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 3/7/2011
