... it's amazing how many dramatisations fall into the most obvious trap - in this case, making Mowgli have an 'Indian' accent but the other characters have South London drawls or 'cod' Cockney accents.
Apart from that, a wonderful listen.
A brilliant dramatisation of the book. So lucky to get it as part of Audible's free-give-away.
If not, download it now. You will listen to it again and again.
Good to hear the stories of childhood & very apt at this time of great danger for all the animals within the story. Why am I not surprised that poor Kaa the snake, who was only ever a friend to Mowgli, got cast as a villain by Disney!
I had never read the jungle book but felt that I knew it after the cartoons etc. However, the book way exceeded my expectations. It is beautifully written and evokes both the jungle and the period in which it was set.
The production is excellent and very entertaining.
A great read and, of course, suitable for all the family. It would be wonderful for a long family car trip.
a wonderful story remastered and enriched with sounds music to transport you to the jungles of India and beyond a wonderful cast bringing the story to life in glorious3D sound

This classic tale has it all. Heart in your throat moments, heart rending moments, hearty laughter moments... All in all... This tale is all heart.
Love using Audible to consume all the books 'people' say you should read. I'm devouring the classics.
Brilliant! Get it! A highly enjoyable book and told in great fashion. I'll definitely be looking for more like it!
