A few years ago, I was reading a book of poetry. One poem in particular caught my eye because it sounded so familiar to me. It turned out that the author was Rudyard Kipling, an English writer from the 1800’s.
I did some more research and found out that he had written a story called “The Jungle Book” which I also read as a child (and loved). He is one of England’s most famous writers and his work is still popular today – even though he died over 100 years ago!
Here are the most interesting sentences from Rudyard Kipling.
