No one heard the stealthy padding of a panther approaching the door, pushing it wider open. But suddenly there were sounds of a frantic struggle, and Sanjay's stifled cries were mixed with the grunts of the panther. Kalam Singh leapt to his feet with a shout. The panther had dragged Sanjay out of the door and was pulling him down the steps...' Man-eating panthers, stealthy leopards, majestic tigers and strange birds inhabit the pages of this delightful collection that brings together thrilling tales from the jungle. From the leopard who develops an unlikely bond with a human, to a young boy who discovers a shelf of books in an old forest bungalow; from Timothy, the tiger cub that Grandfather brings home to tame, to the man-eater that terrorizes an entire village-here is a world where man and wild beast come together in surprising, fascinating ways.
