What the Critics Say

"Listeners should treat themselves to this full-cast audio of this tidy production of Kipling's stories of Mowgli and his jungle friends. Richard E. Grant, Bill Bailey, and a well-chosen cast of British actors make the magic of this audio drama, along with a fine soundscape punctuated with Shere Khan's roar or the howl of the wolf pack. Timing, pace, and elegant storytelling are all here." (AudioFile)

So enjoyable!

This is not the kid version. Older kids would probably enjoy, but great for adults too. I enjoyed this book while walking on the hot and humid nature trails of No Georgia in the Spring. I often felt like I was in the jungle and even did not freak out so much when I saw a few snakes, likely as a result of feeling so tuned into the jungle atmosphere. Love the music and different voices. Well done!

Kipling at its best!

I had to listen to this over and over because I loved the characters so much! Great voice talents. Plus amazing actual animal sounds. I'm glad that I own this, because I will be listening to it many more times! And I will be staring it with my children.
