Description
"Oh hear the call!-Good hunting all / That keep the Jungle Law!" -Night-Song in the Jungle When young little Mowgli's parents are run out of their camp by a formidable Bengal tiger, the toddler scampers to safety alone in the cave of a Seeonee wolf pack. Thereafter, forest animals succor Mowgli, and through his wits and their kindness, he reaches adulthood. Paradox exists in this paradise, but nowhere more forcefully than in the Bengal tiger, Shere Khan. In the contest that must occur between Shere Khan and Mowgli, which will triumph: the human intelligence of Mowgli, or the deep, instinctive cunning of the wily striped cat? Rudyard Kipling, who was forced to learn the art of self-preservation at a foster home and boarding school, believed in following the "Law of the Jungle." Part silly, part serious, the delightful stories in The Jungle Book convey Kipling's message in a way that children and adults alike appreciate.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Like many dramatizations of classic literature, this BBC production of THE JUNGLE BOOK is best enjoyed by listeners who have already experienced the book in its entirety. The excerpts included, however, are surprisingly cohesive and easy to follow despite their brevity. Each animal's voice--from the wolf Akela to the python Kaa--seems somehow plausible, and the decision to use a female narrator for the boy, Mowgli, turns out to be entirely successful. The braying, howling, hooting, and other jungle sounds do get a bit silly, but they're perhaps unavoidable in this story. Far more effective as background are the well-chosen selections of Indian music that evoke the setting of Kipling's tales. D.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine

        December 4, 2017
        Adapted by Powell from Kipling’s The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book, this interactive entry in the Seek and Find Classics series invites readers to take part in the unfolding story. In more than a dozen seek-and-find scenes keyed to significant moments in the plot, children are asked to find 10 objects and animals (and Mowgli, of course) in Frenna’s cinematic cartoons. The retro vibe of her artwork at times recalls the Disney adaptation but still offers a distinctive spin on the characters and drama of the tales. Also available: Alice in Wonderland. Ages 8–up.
