Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This retelling of The Jungle Book is exciting and accessible to younger readers. "The man-cub is mine. Give him to me!" roars Shere Khan, the lame tiger. But Mowgli the man-cub is already deep in a cave, adopted by a family of wolves. Here, in the heart of the Indian jungle, Mowgli learns the laws of the animal kingdom. And, helped by his friends Bagheera, the black panther, and Baloo, the brown bear, Mowgli must face his striped enemy-the tiger, Shere Khan. In this Young Classic edition, children discover the jungle world that Mowgli inhabits. Photography and background information help to set the scene in central India, and bring The Jungle Book to life for a new generation of children.
