The Jungle Book is actually a collection of stories. Anyway, the first eight are part of the same story. It begins when, fleeing the attack of Shere Khan (a huge and ferocious Bengal tiger and the main villain of the book), a human couple loses her young son. This appears in the cave of a family of wolves who not only save him from the clutches of Shere Khan, but turn to welcome him as her own son. Raksha (the wolf mother) calls “Mowgli” -‘la frog ‘, since it has no hair- and incorporates it into its family of wolves.
