I'm the worst ever critic for Jungle Book reading

I've cherished this story since childhood, when I fell in love (Or hate as the case may be) with the Jungle People. I clung to it in young adulthood as I began to realize it's deeper meaning, and now I'm damn near 60,and the power and magic of the telling of these stories of love and Law, revenge and wisdom have not weakened in the least. I know every word by heart. I have to have it in audio form now instead of reading it myself, but every now and then, I still have to have it!
So when I say Mr Batchelor has nailed the spirit of these tales you may believe me. His voices and inflections are spot on, and those who love Jungle Book as I do can safely trust your ears to him!

Incomplete - doesn't include the last 2 stories

Incomplete - doesn't include the last 2 stories in the book, "Spring Running" (a Mowgli tale), and "Outsong" a poem).
