Rudyard Kipling

Do you remember reading The Jungle Book? This day in 1865, author Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, in the Bombay Presidency of British India. His experiences in India, as both a young child and years later as a young adult, highly influenced much of his writings. Regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story, today Kipling’s children’s books are regarded as enduring classics of children’s literature. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907, and became on of the most successful writers of his time.

Kipling died on January 18, 1936. His ashes were buried in Poets’ Corner of Westminster Abbey, next to the graves of Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy.
