This book is about Mowgli, the mancub, and tells the story of Mowglis life in the jungle. The story begins when Mowgli's village is attacked by Shere Khan and he is left in a basket to float through the river. He is discovered by a pack of wolves that rescues him and raises him with the other baby wolves as one of the pack.

As he grows up in the jungle he befriends other wild animals including Baloo the bear, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi the mongoose and Bagheera the black panther. They teach him the laws of the jungle and train him to fight Shere Khan, a tiger who despises human beings.
