Set in faraway India and the Aleutians, the animals and humans who inhabit Kipling's Jungle Books have been children's favorites for generations. Book I introduces the black panther Bagheera, the lame and evil tiger Shere Khan, the rock python Kaa, the brown bear Baloo who teaches the wolf cubs the Law of the Jungle, the man cub Mowgli who lives with the wolves, Toomai of the elephants, and many others. Though the stories and characters are exotic, the themes they address are universal ones: courage, loyalty, and adventure. Stories include: Mowgli's Brothers, Kaa's Hunting, Tiger-Tiger!, The White Seal, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, Toomai of the Elephants, and Servants of the Queen. Download and start listening now!

    " I've never read The Jungle Book before (although I used to love the Disney film) so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. I knew about Kipling's views on empire and so forth, but this was quite a charming book of fables, using the stories to provide morals. Less than half of it is taken up by Mowgli's adventures with the rest being unrelated short stories, including the mongoose Rikki-Tikki-Tavi's fight against the snakes and the white seal Kotick's search for a safe haven for seals, where humans won't hunt them. "

    " So far, I don't get the Kipling quotes. More yet to be read. "

    " I grew up with the idea that I was a 1950's, female Texas equivalent of Mowgli. I hung upside down from the swing, swung on ropes, and talked to Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (stuffed, who slept beside me each night). Fast forward fifty-five years or so, and I think the moral tone set by the characters and the events is one that would be rewarding for every parent to embrace with children. So not only is the story/character/event/and moral worth reading, but also the lessons learned are totally valuable. If you buy children's books...buy this one. And don't get frightened by Shere Khan...Bengal Tigers are now endangered! "

    " Can't the animals all just get along? "
