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. Timeless Classics--designed for the struggling reader and adapted to retain the integrity of the original classic. These classic novels will grab a student's attention from the first page. Audiobook for each title is paced for students to follow the text word-for-word and include two audio CDs--more help for struggling readers. Books sold separately. In long ago India, a toddler wanders off and is taken in by a family of wolves. Coached by a friendly bear, the "man-cub" has many adventures as he learns the ways of the jungle. But things begin to change when Mowgli becomes a young man. Now he feels a strange pull towards creatures of his own kind. About the AuthorNobel prize-winning writer Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India, but returned with his parents to England at the age of five. Influenced by experiences in both India and England, Kipling s stories celebrate British imperialism and the experience of the British soldier in India. Amongst Kipling s best-known works are The Jungle Book, Just So Stories, and the poems Mandalay and Gunga Din. Kipling was the first English-language writer to receive the Nobel prize for literature (1907) and was amongst the youngest to receive the award. Kipling died in 1936 and is interred in Poets Corner in Westminster Abbey.
