India, aparte de a Mougli, tenemos a l. a. astuta mangosta Riki-tiki-tavi, a Tuméi −el muchacho que tiene el privilegio de presenciar el legendario baile de los elefantes−, al santón Purun, al reportero que conoce los angeles lengua de los animales y es testigo de una reveladora conversación entre las bestias de carga del Ejército de Su Majestad… Cierto es, por otro lado, que el sueño infantil de ser hermano de todos los animales y de verse libre de las restricciones humanas está presente en casi todos los cuentos con un poder cautivador.

Esta edición, en una nueva traducción de Catalina Martínez Muñoz, recupera el plan y el orden unique de Kipling e incluye los dos Libros de los angeles selva, además de «En el ruj» (1893), el cuento en que el personaje de Mougli apareció por primera vez.
