About the Author

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India, in 1865. One of the most revered writers in recent history, many of his works are deemed classic literature. To this day, he maintains an avid following and reputation as one of the greatest storytellers of the past two centuries. He published hundreds of short stories, novels, and poetry collections, including the short story "The Man Who Would Be King" and the famed poem "If." In 1907, he received the Nobel Prize for Literature. He died in 1936, but his stories live on--even nearly one hundred years after his passing. Angel Dominguez was born in the Basque Country in 1953. He is an award-winning illustrator of more than twenty books and is known throughout Spain. His lavish work has already been compared to some of the greatest illustrators of the past century, including one of his inspirations, Arthur Rackham. Angel's art has graced postage stamps, magazine illustrations, stationary, postcards, earthenware, and more. Notable among his work is "The King's Gift," which he illustrated specifically for Queen Rania of Jordan in 2000. The art in The Jungle Book won the CCEI Award in Spain for best illustrated book. He lives with his wife in Laredo, Spain.

Reviews

"A pure outburst of genius."
-The New York Times

"I felt myself hearing the strange noises, feeling the ground slither with snakes, and sweating in the heat of the penetrating environment of the jungle's overpowering force."
-Guardian

"The Jungle Book of Mr. Rudyard Kipling has won a well-nigh universal audience... and bids fair, with The Second Jungle Book... to take its place on the high, narrow shelf of everlasting works."
-Bookman

"It would take too long to enumerate even half of the marvelous touches by which the creatures miscalled dumb are made to live for us by Rudyard Kipling... The saddest words of this volume are those with which he closes, 'And this is the last of the Mowgli stories!'"
-Vogue
