A classic story of friendship between man and beast. Saved from the jaws of the evil tiger Shere Khan, young Mowgli is adopted by a wolf pack and taught the law of the jungle by lovable old Baloo the bear and Bhageera the panther. The adventures of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi the snake-fighting mongoose, little Toomai and the elephant's secret dance, and Kotick the white seal are all part of Mowgli's extraordinary journey with his animal friends. Brilliantly introduced by bestselling author, Christopher Paolini.
This edition is part of the Puffin Classics collection, which we have chosen because it contains many of the books we read in Challenge, allowing for easy storage on your bookshelf with a clean, uncluttered look. Also, where possible, we strive to obtain copies produced for the British audience, and the Puffin classics fulfil that objective.
Note: Many classic books are available for free on an e-reader such as the Amazon Kindle. Although this can be a great way to read the classics, we still encourage families to purchase a physical copy. The smell of paper, flipping through the sheets, scribbling notes in the margin, underlining, and highlighting allow you and your student to develop a much closer connection to the content, enriching your experience. As an added bonus, discussing the book in seminar is much easier when all the students have the same physical copy with identical pagination.
