The Jungle Book is the story of a child, Mowgli, who is adopted by wolves and raised in an Indian jungle.
Like any youngster, he has to learn the way of the land, in this case, the jungle – culture, personalities and who he can trust. He is chosen to be a “wolf” by the other animals. Eventually, he is exposed to other humans and begins to question his identity. But he is disheartened by the greed and destructiveness displayed by those who entered the Jungle Book.
He can accept the other traits also apparent in the animal kingdom like stupidity and savagery, but he cannot comprehend the greediness of humans. He is challenged through many adventures, some of which he is pitted against his enemy, the tiger. These drive him to be eventually able to accept his humanity.
