Mowgli is a boy who was raised by wolves. He lives in the jungle and spends his days climbing trees, eating honey, and swimming in forest pools.
The jungle is Mowlgi's home--but not everyone wants him there. Mowlgi has a dangerous enemy, the ferocious tiger Shere Kahn. Mowgli knows that someday he will be forced to fight Shere Kahn--or leave the jungle for good.(Lexile:740)
