The Jungle Book is essentially a collection of fables in which Kipling employs the idea of anthropomorphism, which attributes human traits and emotions to non-human entities. The book is divided into fourteen chapters, of which seven are short stories and the remaining comprises songs which serve as epigrams and follow each story. Through each story, Kipling aims to convey a moral message to the readers. While the short stories are written in the third person narrative, the epigrammatic poems serve as mouthpieces of the main characters themselves, thereby voicing their concerns and opinions.
