About the Author
Rudyard Kipling (1865 1936) was an author of books for children and adults who achieved wide critical acclaim in his lifetime. Born in India, he was sent to school in England, where he endured difficult years with a foster family but discovered a love for reading. When he was seventeen he returned to India for a time, where he worked as a journalist before turning to poetry, short stories for which he is best known and novels. "The Jungle Book" became an instant classic and was followed by other much-loved children s books, including "Kim" and the "Just So Stories." Kipling s many awards include the Gold Medal of the Royal Society of Literature and the Nobel Prize in Literature.

He has also been nominated for the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award and the TD Canadian Children s Literature Award. Ian currently lives in Brookline, Massachusetts, with his wife, Deb."
