This must-have picture book adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved classic The Jungle Book brings Mowgli’s story to a new generation of readers.
Mowgli loves living in the jungle with his wolf family and his friends Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. He’s been learning the ways of the jungle ever since he was a little boy. But when the tiger Shere Khan tries to turn the pack against Mowgli, making him feel unwelcome, Mowgli realizes he may not belong here after all. What will happen when it’s time for the boy to leave the wolf pack that raised him to go live with his people?
The lively text coupled with Migy Blanco’s beautiful, vibrant illustrations adapts the original story for the picture book audience. Fans of this classic about courage and the power of family will love to introduce little ones to the legendary cast of characters with this accessible take on Mowgli’s timeless journey.
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.
