    Hunted by the fearsome tiger Shere Khan, a defenceless young man-cub is taken in by a family of wolves who name him Mowgli. Brought before Akela, the head of the wolf pack, Mowgli finds acceptance but also earns the tiger's wrath, who swears that one day the boy will be his.

    With the guidance of Baloo the bear and Bagheera the black panther, Mowgli must quickly learn the ways of the jungle if he is ever to survive.

    In Audible's award-winning dramatisation of Kipling's classic tale, Mowgli's fate is magically, dramatically and faithfully brought to life by a cast that features the voice talents of Richard E Grant, Colin Salmon, Bill Bailey, Tim McInnerny and Celia Imrie.

A lovely reminder of my youth

As a boy I loved the jungle book. This was a well narrated audio book that brought old memories flooding back. Cannot believe this is available free of charge!

for 8-10 year olds

Play it to a 5 year old and you'll have fun sleeping on the edge of your bed while the little oppressor sleeping in the middle (taking up space of 2 people) demands that you protect them from scary jungle creatures lurking under theirs.

It's good but heed my warning. It ain't for preschoolers.

Great adaptation of classic book

So much more to the story than the film with beautiful language. My children loved it.

Unbearable hissing noise

While it's a nice touch to add sound effects, it's prohibitive to enjoying the performance in places. Chapter two opens with a hissing background noise, possibly intended to be water. It's not in the background enough though and competes with the narration and performance. Very disappointing.

Absolutely fantastic

Top narration by all characters and I loved the short stories. Started off as a an audio book to help me sleep but I ended up wanting to know what was going to happen in each story to Mowgli and the others!
Really fantastic, you need this in your audio library.

An All Around Excellent Audio Selection

I don't remember if I used one of my (precious) credits for this - I don't think I did - but if it had costed me a credit, it would have been worth it. I would have paid for it too because I enjoyed it that much. As an avid audible/ audio book/ podcasts listner, I apprecaite the quality of storytelling, sound effects, narration, and how the narrators bring their animal characters to life through only their voice and breath work. If I remember correctly, the episodes are short, approximately 15-20 minutes, so you can break it up or binge on it (like I did). Happy hunting....

So Well Done

This series is beautifully acted, directed, and orchestrated. I enjoyed it thoroughly! Occasionally the sound effects were a little on the nose, but 95% of the time they helped bring the tales to life. Highly recommended.
