Created the jungle in my car.

When I downloaded this selection I did not notice that it was a dramatization of the Mowgli Stories, and felt some concern when the introduction stated this fact. I don't always like cast readings with theatrical sound effects, preferring to create the theater in my mind. This was a delightful exception. The cast was superb with the voice acting, and the jungle sounds created the proper atmosphere, especially the wonderful bird songs. I was enchanted to hear favorite stories told this way. Highly recommended whether you are new to the Jungle Book or already know it well.

Spectacular

I am picky about audio books. I want them well told or not at all. This rendition of the jungle book was done beautifully. It was read so well that the full beauty of the writing was strikingly apparent. It was read with heart, and so was moving and impactful. I will most definitely listen to it many times again.
