By Rudyard Kipling
It could be easily disregarded as a book written for children, but Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is definitely one to pick up before watching the film. The short stories detail a whole world that encapsulate Kipling’s philosophy of life. He writes about the how we see things as a society and how we do things as humans. More than just a simple tale for kids, it’s definitely worth picking apart this literary work of art before setting down to watch the new remake.
