In a nutshell: jungle adventures, jungle survival

Makur – Mak – star of Bear Gryll’s thoroughly entertaining story Spirit of the Jungle is back for a new adventure and it’s as gripping as the first. Mak is in India again and has met up with his friend Diya. They’re meant to be keeping out of trouble, but when a young elephant is taken from its herd by a cruel merchant the two decide to reunite it with its family. Soon they are on their own in the jungle and will need all their wits – and all their survival skills – to make it home. It’s a real page-turner and full of fascinating details about the jungle and its creatures as well as information on ways to survive it. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Return to the Jungle by Bear Grylls

Could you survive in the jungle? Six months after his adventures in Spirit of the Jungle, Mak returns to the Wainganga River, where a conservation project is tracking the elusive wild elephant, endangered by loggers and poachers. When a young elephant is captured by an unscrupulous merchant, Mak and his friend Diya follow them into the heart of the jungle in a quest to set the animal free. But soon Mak finds that he must remember all his survival skills to escape danger.

Inspired by Rudyard Kipling's classic The Second Jungle Book, Return to the Jungle is an exciting contemporary action-adventure from the nation's favourite adventurer, Bear Grylls.

Venetia Gosling, Macmillan Children's Books says: “We are relishing exploring our archive and with the 150th anniversary of Rudyard Kipling’s birth we felt this was the opportunity to do something different with the Macmillan Jungle Book, bringing it to a new generation. Bear Grylls is a fantastic advocate for independence and adventure, and this is the perfect combination of his profile and interests with our fantastic publishing heritage.”

Bear Grylls says: “The Jungle Book is one of the great timeless classics and I am so proud to be re-invigorating this for a modern young readership who are new to the tale – brace yourselves for the ultimate action-packed adventure that will both inspire and stay with young readers as they grow up!”

About the Author

Bear Grylls has become known around the world as one of the most recognized faces of survival and outdoor adventure. Trained from an early age in martial arts and taught to climb and sail by his father, Bear went on to spend three years as a soldier in the British Special Forces, serving with 21 SAS, before becoming one of the youngest-ever climbers of Mount Everest. Since then he has gone on to host more extreme adventure TV shows across more global networks than anyone else in the world, including The Island with Bear Grylls for Channel 4, Bear Grylls' Survival School for ITV, Man vs. Wild for Discovery Channel, Running Wild with Bear Grylls for NBC and Survivor Games for Chinese TV. He is also a family man and a number-one bestselling author, with twenty-two books to his name, including his autobiography, Mud, Sweat and Tears, and the popular Mission Survival series for children. He also writes and performs the live-action stadium show Endeavour. Bear is an honorary Colonel to the Royal Marines Commandos, and the youngest-ever Chief Scout, an inspiration to forty million Scouts worldwide.
