The Laws of the Jungle are the rules that every animal must follow. They say many things about hunting. But mostly the Law tells the animals not to hunt Men. If an animal kills a man, the whole man village comes out with guns and fire. They fill the jungle with loud noises and kill a lot of the animals. So the animals don’t hunt Men to protect themselves. So don’t be frighted when you walk through the jungle, if you follow the Law of the Jungle, you won't be hurt. But Shere Khan was right when he said the pack must accept Little Mowgli. When the cubs are old enough to stand on their feet he must bring them to the Pack Council, which is held once a month at full moon. I think I see the full moon rising now. Several moons have sailed the sky since Mowgli first escaped Shere Khan. He has started walking and Mother Wolf must take him to the pack council. They are gathering now.
