" When I picked this book up again I did so without remembering this was the story of Mowgli. I'll admit, I don't love this book. It is superbly written. Indeed, a classic. Yet, I don't love it. I like it well enough for the classic that it is and I know my son will love it - it will be a fantastic bedtime book for me to read to him sometime this year. I just can't muster up any real affection for this story. This very well might be a deficiency within me, but it is what it is. I can readily recommend it, as I know others will love it though I do not. Don't even bother with the Disney version, as the real deal is far superior in every way. "
