Mowgli the man-cub
Отрывок из книги
It was late afternoon. Father Wolf awoke from his sleep, yawned and stretched his legs. He pushed out his claws and looked at them. They were sharp and clean. It was time to go hunting for food. Mother Wolf sat watching her four cubs playing and rumbling around her.
Suddenly, her ears stood up and she stretched her neck. She could hear the leaves of a bush rustling.
“The man-cub,” Shere Khan answered. “I saw him crawl this way.”
“Go away. He is ours.”
