Tonight, we'll be reading the opening to, "The Jungle Book", an 1894 collection by the English author Rudyard Kipling. Most of the characters are animals such as a tiger and a 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.
