He and his friends Baloo, a sloth bear, and Bagheera, a black panther, go on many adventures culminating to a fight with the jungle's bully, the tiger Shere Khan. Containing other famous stories such as Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and Toomai of the Elephants, this collection of Rudyard Kipling's most famous stories encompasses his time living in India and the wonders of the Indian jungle.
