Rudyard Kipling is not only a master of the English language, he is a master teller of tall tales who understands animals and people, their habits and 19th century India. His stories are a mix of credibility, delightful critters and colorful characters mixed with a touch of poetic license. The Jungle Book is timeless and filled with stories for children of all ages.--Submitted by PJ Little
Deep truths and deep insights into and from the human and animal conditions; Kipling's Jungle Book remain a priceless treasure to all. While the Disney cartoon is "cute", it only vaguely resembles what Mr. Kipling actually wrote and certainly contains neither the drama, wisdom or beautiful language of the original text. Only Alexander Korda's beautiful film of 1942 comes remotely close, and it does no more than that. The older I get the MORE delight I find in these rich, masterful stories: a gift that goes on giving.--Submitted by Steve White.
