A full-cast dramatisation of Kipling's classic animal adventure, starring Eartha Kitt.

Rudyard Kipling's famous tale tells the story of Mowgli, the man-cub rescued from the tiger Shere Khan and adopted by a wolf pack.

As he grows up, Mowgli learns the ways of the jungle from Baloo the bear, Bagheera the black panther, and Kaa the rock python. His life is full of adventure with the jungle creatures, but soon the time comes when he is forced to leave and take his place among his own people.

A kind woman looks after Mowgli, but she can't protect him from the superstitious villagers who believe his friendship with wolves is the result of sorcery. Mowgli's only escape is to return to the jungle. But even the jungle has become a dangerous place.

This rich and entertaining dramatisation skilfully blends words with jungle sounds and music, and stars Eartha Kitt as Kaa, Freddie Jones as Baloo, Jonathan Hyde as Bagheera and Nisha K. Mayer as Mowgli. Download and start listening now!

    " Re-reading again after over 50 years. Very enjoyable and realaxing read. I enjoyed some of the stories other than the ones about Mowgli and Rikki Tikki Tavi, but I still skipped the story about the seal. Maybe I'll finish it in another 50 years. "

    " Not quite what I expected, but good nontheless. All I had to go on was the Disney cartoon. Lots of short stories, with some about other "people" than Mowgli. "
