The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, Laura Driscoll

Mowgli's story comes to life in this classic retelling of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, featuring beautiful, vibrant illustrations by Migy Blanco. 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. But what will happen when it's time for the boy to leave the wolf pack that raised him to go live with his people?

Out in April 2016, the new feature-length live-action film of the Jungle Book from Disney.

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay (now known as Mumbai), India, but returned with his parents to England at the age of five. Among Kipling's best-known works are The Jungle Book, Just So Stories, and the poems Mandalay and Gunga Din. Kipling was the first English-language writer to receive the Nobel Prize for literature (1907) and was among the youngest to have received the award. Migy Blanco started his career in London, where he lived for ten years after graduating from university. He then moved to the wilds of South America for some adventure before landing back in Frome, UK, with his wife and two children. Along the way, Migy has been imagining and developing his vibrant, magical, and bold art style. His eye-catching artwork has been featured everywhere from the Glastonbury Festival in the UK to the newsstands of Portland, Oregon. You can visit him at Laura Driscoll is the author of numerous first chapter and beginning reader books, including We Are Twins and The Bravest Cat! She lives in central Connecticut with her husband and two children.
