Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melyssa Malinowski
Most young children are familiar with the movie The Jungle Book, but many do not know that the story is loosely based on a book. In this beginning reader chapter book, the story begins like you would expect. Mowgli, the man cub, is taken in and raised by the wolfpack. To do this, the pack must stand together against Shere Khan, the lame white tiger. Mowgli grows up in relative peace, learning the language of the animals and the law of the jungle from Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. However, in the background, there is always the threat of Shere Khan. Through the tiger's plotting, Mowgli is eventually cast out of the wolf pack. He takes refuge in the nearest man village. While in the village, he confronts and defeats Shere Khan, with the help of the village herds and his wolf brothers. With Shere Khan dead, can Mowgli rejoin the wolf pack? Can he go back to the jungle life that he loves so dearly? Beginning readers would be enthralled by this amazing story, making this a welcome addition to any elementary school library. The chapters are short, and the story is entertaining, lively, and easy to follow. This is a nice retelling of a classic tale that leaves the reader satisfied, but with their curiosity piqued for other tales of Mowgli's adventures. Reviewer: Melyssa Malinowski
