The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Jungle Book:

The collected stories of the forest.

My  favorite Rudyard Kipling quote from the book:

"Now, don't be angry after you've been afraid. That's the worst kind of cowardice."

Questions to ponder while reading The Jungle Book:

Was Bagheera a little harsh?

Don't you want a mongoose?

My review of The Jungle Book:

Good story moral, bad racial behavior.

Childhood favorite.

Rikki Tikki Tavi for the win.
