You know how things don't always

work out according to plan?

Well, this turned out to be

a really, really, really bad idea.

I was totally lost. I figured

I'd never find my mom and dad

and they'd never find me.

Butjust then, I found a cave.

Well, more like a den,

really, of wolves.

I didn't know any better.

They just looked like pets to me.

Look, Mom, a pet.

What is it? A hairless chimp?

I don't know. I don't think chimps

come in hairless.

That's a man's cub. There were

some hunters over the ridge.

He'll be one of theirs.

A man-cub?

What's he doing out here?

He must be lost.

- You think he's been abandoned?

Cool! Can we keep him? Please?

Li'I Raksha, man-cubs are cute,

but when they grow up,

they can be dangerous.

Dangerous? Not this one.

He's a lover, not a fighter.

- Look how cute he is, Dad!

And he likes me! Mom, Dad, come on.

If we keep him, who'll feed him?

Who'll clean up after him

until he's cave-broken?

Oh, no. Here he comes.

Stay, boy, stay.

Nice doggy.

- Whoa.

Did he call the Leader

of the Wolf Pack doggy?

Lighten up, Dad.

He doesn't speak wolf yet.

That's another thing he has to learn,

and who'll teach him?

A pet's a big responsibility.

But if he was abandoned, then

that makes him our responsibility.

You don't leave a cub to fend

for itself, Akela, man-cub or not.

True. The cub does need a family.

Well, we're a family!

See, hubby?

- Alright, we can keep him.

Yippee! I got a little brother.

And he's a great tummy rubber.

What should we call him?

Li'I Akela?

That's original.

What do you think, Li'I Raksha?

I say we call him Pupupeepee.

- What does that mean?

Beats me, but it sure sounds funny.

Look at him. Like a little frog.

Little Frog. Good call, Mom.

- Little Frog. Mowgli.

OK, Mowgli it is.

Rudyard Kipling

Joseph Rudyard Kipling ( RUD-yərd; 30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He was born in India, which inspired much of his work. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature, and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift".Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the British Empire, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius, as distinct from fine intelligence, that I have ever known." In 1907, at the age of 42, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize and its youngest recipient to date. He was also sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, both of which he declined.Kipling's subsequent reputation has changed according to the political and social climate of the age and the resulting contrasting views about him continued for much of the 20th century. George Orwell saw Kipling as "a jingo imperialist", who was "morally insensitive and aesthetically disgusting". Literary critic Douglas Kerr wrote: "[Kipling] is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognised as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with." more…
