Okay performance of wonderful stories
This is a pretty good performance of the wonderful Kipling stories I grew up with around the fireplace. The narrator's voice is sometimes kind of creepy enough to be distracting (it almost sounds like the demon in the Exorcist). But if you love these stories or want your kids to know the real Mogli, Bagiera, Caa, and Balu, this is a good way to do it (but not late at night in the dark). Also includes Rikki Tikki Tavi. This is not the Disney version, either -- there are some scary and violent stories so I wouldn't recommend it for much younger than 10 or 12 year olds (example is the clubbing of seals and the attack on the village of Mogli's parents). It does not condone violence, but it doesn't always condemn it either -- treats it well as a fact of life. Just not recommended for kids who have nightmares or are disturbed by violence. I'm not 100 percent sure this is really unabridged, either. The stories themselves clearly are, but I'm relatively certain that not all of them are included.
