GUY ADAMS: Apparently Victorian writer Rudyard Kipling's word poem 'If' - which has several times been voted Britain’s favourite poem - is offensive to ethnic minorities. The Jungle Book () and Just So Stories () give the wit and wisdom of the animals who can talk.

The stories of Mowgli, a man-cub who was the central character in The Jungle Book, brought Kipling great popularity in England and the United States. His novels, short stories, and poetry earned him an immense following the world over, rekindled recently with the release of the Kipling-inspired film, “The Jungle Book.” Inat the age of 42, he was awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature, the first English-language recipient to ever win the award.
