Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. Jungle Book is a 1942 independent Technicolor action-adventure film by the Hungarian Korda brothers, based on a screenplay adaptation by Laurence Stallings of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, about a wild boy who is kidnapped by villagers who are cruel to animals as they attempt to steal a dead king's cursed treasure.
Now Rann, the Kite, brings home the night That Mang, the Bat, sets free - The herds are shut in byre and hut, For loosed till dawn are we. This is the hour of pride and power, Talon and tush and claw. Oh, hear the call! – Good hunting all That keep the Jungle Law! Night-Song in the Jungle. IT was seven o'clock of a very warm evening in the Seeonee hills when Father Wolf woke up from his day's rest, scratched himself, yawned, and spread out his paws one after the other to get rid of the sleepy feeling in the tips.
The Jungle Book (1894) is a collection of stories by the English author Rudyard Kipling. Most of the characters are animals such as Shere Khan the tiger and Baloo the bear, though a principal character is the boy or "man-cub" Mowgli, who is raised in the jungle by wolves. The stories are set in a forest in India; one place mentioned repeatedly is "Seonee" (Seoni), in the central state of Madhya Pradesh.
Now Chil the Kite brings home the night. That Mang the Bat sets free- The herds are shut in byre and hut, For loosed till dawn are we. Oh, hear the call!-Good hunting all. That keep the Jungle Law! Mowgli's Brothers. And none shall inhabit again! Letting in the Jungle. These are the Four that are never content, that have never be filled since the Dews began- Jacala's mouth, and the glut of the Kite, and the hands of the Ape, and the Eyes of Man. The King's Ankus. For our white and our excellent nights-for the nights of swift running, Fair ranging, far seeing, good hunting, sure cunning! For the smells of the dawning, untainted, ere dew has departed! For the rush through the mist, and the quarry blind-started! For the cry of our mates when the sambhur has wheeled and is standing at bay!
The Jungle Book is a collection of fables which teach moral lessons narrated through animals, written by Rudyard Kipling.
This classic children's book by Rudyard Kipling tells the story of Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves: his escapades and adventures with his dear friends Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear, his capture by the Monkey-People, his attempt at reintegration into human society, and his ultimate triumph over the lame tiger Shere Khan.
