As well as the well-known chapters about Mowgli and his life as a human raised by wolves in India, there were also some lesser-known stories about seals and mongooses (mongeese?) among others. These stories (though catching me off guard when the "Jungle Book" I'd known ended halfway through the book) were wonderful and I look forward to sharing them with the kids I work with. In all, I would give the book 4.5/5.0, and recommend it to everyone!
"The others they hate thee because their eyes cannot meet thine; because thou art wise; because thou hast pulled out thorns from their feet--because thou art a man." [Page 26]
My rating: (4.5/5.0)
