The site was started may 21, 2000 as a small homepage  mainly showing Marc's own Jungle Book collection. The number of Jungle Book items was growing fast, specialy the page with the Jungle Books from Rudyard Kipling because of the contributions made by LeeM. About one year later  the site moved to its current web address. The pages where not longer typed in by hand, but Marc created special code to generate the pages from a database. During summer 2004, Marc added JBWiki to the site. The code for this wiki was written by Patrick R. Michaud.
