Set in faraway India and the Aleutians, the animals and humans who inhabit Kipling's Jungle Books have been children's favorites for generations. Book I introduces the black panther Bagheera, the lame and evil tiger Shere Khan, the rock python Kaa, the brown bear Baloo who teaches the wolf cubs the Law of the Jungle, the man cub Mowgli who lives with the wolves, Toomai of the elephants, and many others. Though the stories and characters are exotic, the themes they address are universal ones: courage, loyalty, and adventure. Stories include: "Mowgli's Brothers," "Kaa's Hunting," "Tiger-Tiger!", "The White Seal," "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi," "Toomai of the Elephants," and "Servants of the Queen."
Audiobook narrator Flo Gibson gives a spirited, theatrical reading of Rudyard Kipling's beloved children's stories in The Jungle Books. Gibson captures Kipling's warmth and the humor - a more dry, austere brand than that of the rollicking Disney version - in her performance of these classic stories set in the Indian Jungle. Reunite with Ricki-Tikki-Tavi, the noble mongoose, Mowgli, the boy raised by wolves, and the murderous Shere Khan. With their light touch and moral lessons, the stories in The Jungle Books are still among the most important children's tales ever told.
"The combination of the rich, dramatic voice of Washington actress Flo Gibson and the mastery of Kipling's prose is absolutely spellbinding! Wonderful to take with you on those long drives to grandmother's house.¿" (Parent's Choice Magazine)
