Into the Jungle is a modern classic in the making, as Katherine Rundell creates charming and compelling origin stories for all Kipling's best-known characters, from Baloo and Shere Khan to Kaa and Bagheera. As Mowgli travels through the Indian jungle, this brilliantly visual tale, which weaves each short story together into a wider whole, will make readers both laugh and cry.

this book is everything a fan of the original jungle books 1 and 2 could wish for. five great tales. having loved the jungle books for years, and read both the original, as well as heard many dramatic adaptations, i was keen to get hold of this book. I loved every minute of the tales.
