The Second Jungle Book

The Second Jungle Book is a sequel to The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. First published in 1895, it features five stories about Mowgli and three unrelated stories, all but one set in India, which Kipling wrote while living in Vermont. All of the stories were previously published in magazines in 1894-5, often under different titles. The book is less well-known than the original even though it arguably contains some of Kipling's best animal stories.

In 1992 Pamela Jekel wrote The Third Jungle Book, consisting entirely of new Mowgli stories, in a passable imitation of Kipling's style.

The Second Jungle Book: Mowgli and Baloo is a film starring Jamie Williams as Mowgli, but the movie's story has little or no connection with the stories in Rudyard Kipling's The Second Jungle Book.
