The Second Jungle Book  (1895) 
by Rudyard Kipling

The Second Jungle Book is a sequel to The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. First published in 1895, it features five stories about Mowgli and three unrelated stories ["The Miracle of Purun Bhagat", "The Undertakers" and "Quiquern"], all but one set in India, most of which Kipling wrote while living in Vermont. All of the stories were previously published in magazines in 1894-5, often under different titles. The book is less well-known than the original.

Excerpted from The Second Jungle book on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Embossed cover from the original MacMillan edition of The Second Jungle Book, 1895, based on art by John Lockwood Kipling (Rudyard's father).
