The Jungle Book REVIEW
By: Rudyard Kipling
Publisher: Tor Books
This edition of The Jungle Book includes a Biographical Note, Foreward, Preface, and Afterword by Jane Yolen.
I chose to read the Jungle Book for my English book analysis paper :)
I'm glad I did.
The Jungle Book is a collection of short stories, but they all take place out in the wild. The most famous ones are about Mowgli and his adventures in the jungle, how the other animals react to having him there etc.
This is not like the Disney movie version. Baloo isn't as free spirited as in the movie, and Mowgli doesn't really dance around.
It's a very powerful story though, that reflects how our society is build today. If you are looking for a book that will be fun to read but at the same time leave you with a lot of political questions this the book for you to read!
