This selection of Rudyard Kipling’s short stories features ten of his most brilliant creations – a thrilling mix of mysteries, adventures, science fiction and horror. In these tales of shipwrecks and tidal waves, blackmailers and false kings, hallucinating poets and shell-shocked gardeners, Kipling uses the full force of his creative powers to devastating effect.
An entertaining collection from the much loved author of The Jungle Book, and the first book ever published as a Pan paperback.

The fourteen fables in this landmark of children’s literature tell the story of Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. With the help of Baloo the bear, Kaa the python, and Bagheera the black panther, Mowgli learns the laws of the wild and survives countless escapades—none more thrilling than his confrontation with the menacing tiger Shere Khan, king of the jungle.
Many other unforgettable characters appear in The Jungle Book, including Kotick, a rare white seal who searches for a safe haven from those who hunt him; Rikki-tikki-tavi, a brave mongoose who saves a boy and his family from a pair of deadly cobras; and Toomai, a ten-year-old elephant trainer who risks everything to witness one of the world’s greatest mysteries: the dance of the elephants.
As educational as it is entertaining, Rudyard Kipling’s masterpiece has delighted and inspired generations of readers the world over.
