Discover Rudyard Kipling’s classic story of Mowgli, the man-cub who is raised by wolves, how as a human struggles to survive and understand the law of the jungle.
Mowgli with the help of Baloo, the wise bear, Bagheera the black panther and his wolf brothers goes on to explore the jungle. Along the way he learns the rules of the jungle and faces the deadly tiger Shere Khan.
The original Jungle Book includes Mowgli’s story along with other short stories by Rudyard Kipling.
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.
