The Jungle Book - Illustrated Edition Review

Featured Books for 7+ readers

The sights and smells of the jungle spring vividly to life in Rudyard Kipling’s classic stories. Full of animal wisdom and lore, the three captivating stories in this collection tell of the early life of Mowgli, the little boy brought up by wolves deep in the heart of the Indian jungle. This new edition with Nicola’s Bayley’s beautifully drawn illustrations capture the brilliant colours of the jungle as well the shadowy life of Mowgli and his animal friends.

It is part of the Walker Illustrated Classics, a new series which brings together some of the best-loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists. These exquisitely designed books, with their magnificent words and glorious pictures, are a pleasure to read - and re-read. The classics have never looked so good.
