ParkerWhat do you say about a classic. Kipling wrote many books about India during the Raj period. They are filled with stories of the period and the people, rich and poor, Anglo and Indian. The Jungle Book is a bit different in that the tales (no pun intended) are about animals. One of them Riki Tiki Too is about a mongoose, and the theme is the interdependence between people and animals and how they can learn to work together and appreciate each other. I highly recommend this book, for children as well as adults. There is a lot to learn here. I've read it through several times starting when it was read to me as a young child.2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. It was a nice story years ago and it's


a nice story todayBy Theresa McDanielBought this book because I wanted my grandson to read the story prior to seeing the movie. It was a nice story years ago and it's a nice story today.2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. Buy it for the picturesBy Mark W. BrownCalla is an imprint of Dover, the same publisher that used to boast that its paperback books were built to last. Alas, Dover hasn't manufactured paperbacks that way in years, but this clothbound edition looks every bit as durable as it is beautiful. Many will find it an attractive alternative to the Borzoi Book (Everyman's Library) published by Knopf; the paper is finer, and the illustrations (by the Detmold brothers) are reproduced in full color. This book is not, however, a facsimile reprint of the Macmillan edition of 1908. As the publisher's note explains, the plates have been "reproduced from an extremely scarce, original portfolio of watercolors, and have never before appeared on this scale in book form." From these remarks one gathers that the illustrations are larger here than in the 1908 edition, some of them spread across two pages. Unfortunately, the binding (unlike that of the Knopf edition) is too firm for the open book to lie flat, so several of these two-page presentations (notably that of Kaa on pages 64-65) are spoiled by the heavy fold down the center. Moreover, in spite of the "elegant new type design and many additional decorative elements," it is annoying to find Kipling's verses centered line by line instead of systematically indented according to their rhyme schemes. One final note: the text appears to be that of the first American edition, not the more established English edition. [This is the MP3CD audiobook format.] Children everywhere have read and loved Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book--and continue to do so. Here Blackstone offers this collection of moral fables in its entirety and read by Ralph Cosham. Tales of Mowgli, the boy raised by animals in the exotic jungles of India; Rikki-tikki-tavi, a courageous young mongoose who battles the sinister black cobra Nag; Toomai, the boy who works with elephants; and more will delight listeners both young and old. These classic stories brim with adventure and thrills as the lively characters fend off ferocious tigers and deadly snakes, slip through the jungle to watch elephants dance, and seek refuge from dangerous hunters.
