The Jungle Book Chapter 5

Baloo and Bagheera went to get Kaa, the giant python, to help them. "Please help us, Kaa," they said. "The monkey people have stolen our man-cub. If you help us attack the monkey people, then you can eat as many monkeys as you like." Baloo, Bagheera and Kaa went to the lost city.

As soon as the sun went down, Baloo and Bagheera attacked the monkeys. The monkeys fought fought back, and Baloo and Bagheera were in danger. Then Kaa climbed over the wall.

The monkeys tell their babies terrible stories about Kaa. Even a strong monkey cannot fight against Kaa. When the monkeys saw Kaa, they ran away screaming.

Then Kaa opened his mouth and gave a long hiss. The monkeys heard the sound of his hiss and they stopped running. Everything became silent. Then Kaa began to dance.

He danced very slowly and gracefully in front of the monkeys who were frozen and unable to move. Then Kaa spoke to the monkeys. "Come closer to me," he said. The monkeys slowly came forward.

"Come closer to me!" Kaa hissed.
