The Lovereading4Kids comment
A magical adventure right in the heart of the jungle, The Jungle Book tells how a little boy child grows up in the care of some of the mightiest beasts of the jungle. Saved from the jaws of the ferocious Shere Khan by Mother Wolf and Father Wolf who bring him up alongside their wolf cubs, Mowgli is welcomed in the pack by the mighty Akela. Little Mowgli learns the ways of the jungle through his teachers Baloo the Bear and Bagheera the Panther in a series of wonderful adventures that bring the mysteries of animal lore to light. Bestselling author Christopher Paolini has written a passionate introduction and recommends the book to all lovers of great fantasies.
