Review:

"Loved by children and adults alike" ( Daily Mail)

"The original stories of The Jungle Book surpass all rollicking Disneyfied expectations. On one level, the Mancub's education is pure entertainment; on another, the jungle is symbolic of Kipling's philosophy of life, a moral playground in which the young learn to swing on the vines of life" ( The Times)

"One of the greatest writers that Britain has ever produced" (Griff Rhys Jones)

"The incantatory text of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Books still rewards reading aloud" ( Sunday Times)

"[Its] lasting power to enchant lies not in a contrived simplicity of language - it makes no concession to the age or verbal dexterity of the reader - but rather to its uncanny understanding of the adult within every child" (Beryl Bainbridge)

Book Description:

'As a child I loved The Jungle Books ... If you want to look at the India of Kipling's time, there is no writer who will give it to you better' Salman Rushdie
