The Jungle Book (Paperback)
Mowgli loves living in the jungle with his wolf family and his friends Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. He's been learning the ways of the jungle ever since he was a little boy.
When the tiger Shere Khan tries to turn the wolf pack against Mowgli, making him feel unwelcome, Mowgli realizes he may not belong here after all. But what will happen when it's time for the boy to leave the pack that raised him and go live with his people?
Filled with vibrant full-color illustrations, Mowgli's story comes to life in this fresh retelling of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book.
