Editorial Reviews

In the yellow hues of the African plains, hunting was easy for the leopard, whose light coat served as camouflage. When all the animals moved away, the hungry leopard had to follow them to the striped, splotchy, spotted forest. But he didn't stand a chance of survival unless, of course, he acquired spots himself. Rich in language and subtle humor, this inspired adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling classic comes alive with the gentle sounds of South African a cappella harmonies. Ages 5 and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie! Really takes me back... March 16, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I used to have this story as a Windows 95 computer game, but now that I'm using Windows 8, I can't go back and play it again for old times' sake like I want to. This movie is the perfect solution to my wish for a walk down memory lane. I adore the music the Ladysmith Black Mambazo performed for the game, the audiobook and the movie, and Danny Glover's narration makes this story every bit as lovable as it was meant to be when Rudyard Kipling first wrote it.

In summary, I am so glad I found this again. Thank you, Amazon!

Danny Glover was an excellent choice for reader, paired with Ladysmith, really brings to life a classic story to get a new generation of kids into Kipling's "How so" stories.
