    No this is not your Disney movie - Kipling wrote a fantastic series of short stories, only a few of which include Mowgli. Baloo is not a lazy idiot, Kaa is not a bad guy, SherKahn is killed rather then run off, the wolves are not always the noble good guys... this is VERY different the...

    We are the masters of our planet, but we are not very good masters. We are, in the blunt phrase I saw a zoologist use the other day, a plague species. Sometimes, one feels the world would be better off without human beings. This isn't necessarily a counsel of despair or treachery....

    ?Welcome to the jungle We've got fun 'n' games We got everything you want Honey, we know the names? The opening poem of The Jungle Book: ?Now Rann the Kite brings home the night? etc. is much more elegant than Axl Rose?s effort, but I feel it would be muc...

    IMO, Rudyard Kipling is the worst example of the quintessential British Imperialist and Colonialist. His attitude towards India is contemptuous and condescending. As a person, I dislike him intensely. Kipling writes beautifully. His stories are simple, engaging and profound at the s...

    I read this book when I was a child and I really enjoyed the stories at the time. This book was also a favourite with my children. Wonderful classic stories. Pure nostalgia. ...

    Two weeks ago I arrived at Aberdovey, a small seaside village on the Dyfi estuary in west Wales. So to discover sun, and thus an ideal day for the beach, I needed a book. Having no luck finding a bookshop, and minus my Kindle, the young man in the pub mentioned that the RNLI were selli...

    I first read The Jungle Book at a very young age that I can hardly remember any of it. The Disney movie helped me to recall some of the adventures of Mowgli, but the book was not too familiar for me. This reading, therefore, was as new as the first time. The common understanding o...

    English (The Jungle Book) / Italiano I didn't know that "The Jungle Book" was a collection of tales. Thanks to the Disney movie, I had always identified this novel with the story of Mowgli, the man cub raised by a pack of wolves. But another bedtime reading to my daug...

    India The illustrated Jungle Book is a mixed bag of positives and negatives, and if your only experience of the story is from the films then you are in for a surprising revelation. Firstly the Jungle Book is not one story but an anthology of 7 short stories and 7 songs, and understand...
