Rudyard Kipling is the author of The Jungle Book.
The stories in the Sesame Street book, Grover's Just So-So Stories, were patterned on Just So Stories, Kipling's collection of short stories about how certain animals came to be. Grover's stories are "How the Monster Got his Fur" and "How the Honker Got His Honk."
Baby Animal appears as Mowgli, the main character from The Jungle Book, in Muppet Babies' Classic Children's Tales. He's pictured with Baloo the bear, Shere Khan the tiger, Kaa the snake, and a monkey.
