Publisher's Note:  

One of the most beloved classics in children’s literature, Kipling’s masterpiece follows Mowgli, the boy raised by wolves, and his animal friends as they fight for survival in the Indian jungle. Young readers will love the wise bear Baloo and Bagheera the black panther; shiver at the vicious tiger Shere Khan; laugh at the silly monkeys; and feel compassion for the grown-up Mowgli—who must finally acknowledge his own humanity.

This retelling of the classic story of The Jungle Book is sweet, simple and sure to please young readers. The vocabulary and culture are rich.  However, it is lacking in pictures and resources to define the new words that young readers are sure to encounter in this book. Overall, The Jungle Book is a wonderful book to add to your family’s collection of children’s classics!
