One of literature’s most enduring classics is brought to life in this exciting adventure of Mowgli, the boy raised by caring wolves, befriended by Bagheera, the Panther, and Baloo, the Bear. Under constant threat from Shere Kahn, the evil tiger, Mowgli finds himself tested in this coming-of-age story filled with thieving monkeys, a hypnotic snake, commanding elephants, and a quest to defend one’s family and the discovery of one’s true self.
Interspersed with the Mowgli tale is the equally intriguing story of a young Rudyard Kipling, as we see him try to survive his own “jungle” at boarding school, including people—both good and otherwise—who parallel many of the animal characters he created. Filled with action and fun, The Jungle Book highlights the struggle of good versus evil, the worth of friendship, and the importance of loyalty all required for surviving the “law of the jungle.”
