Description

The first in a series of classic texts reimagined in the modern day. Stolen as a baby and taken in by a pack of street dogs, Mowgli grows up in the jungle of urban Mumbai. As he grows into a man, his life is threatened by the tiger Shere Khan. With the help of Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear, Mowgli learns that he must become the master of his own fate. This stunning retelling brings Rudyard Kipling's tale to a new audience, and its publication coincides with the release of a new feature length animation of the Jungle Book.

Reviews
