Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-6–Three stories–"Mowgli's Brothers," "Kaa's Hunting," and "Tiger! Tiger!"–and six of the poetic songs from Kipling's classic work are accompanied by painterly illustrations. Floral-patterned borders decorate the gutter of every spread, drawing the eye to what is customarily an empty space. A combination of detailed miniature drawings and small framed paintings is strategically placed throughout the text. As is typical of Bayley's style, the masterful use of light, detail, rich color, and texture creates striking and evocative visual effects. The images of the tiger are especially expressive. Unfortunately, the decorative layout and small size of the images don't fully capture the lush setting and drama of Mowgli's adventures. Still, this is a beautifully designed book. Jerry Pinkney's The Jungle Book (HarperCollins, 1995) is another visually appealing version that includes 18 of Kipling's original stories.– Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. First published as part of Kipling's Jungle Book (1894), these three unabridged stories about the boy Mowgli, who is raised by animals, will reach today's readers with the whimsy of animals that speak to the man-cub and teach him the Law of the Jungle. The book design is great for lap sharing. The thick, beige-colored pages are printed with lush, intricate border patterns, and, appearing on every page, Bayley's small, beautiful, colored-pencil pictures show the whole thing--from the naked toddler snuggling with the bear, panther, and wolves to the young man confronting the fierce tiger and, later, entering the human community. The blend of tender nurturing and fierce jungle confrontation is thrilling, especially because although the beasts talk, each one stays true to its animal self. Hazel Rochman

Format: Hardcover
It sounds superfluous to write anything about Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. The book is a classic. I had long nursed a desire to read the original unabridged version and was glad I chose this particular one, with illustrations by Nicola Bayley. Bailey's illustrations, all made with color pencil, are outstanding. The pages are colorful yet not gaudy with Indian art themed designs. Very inviting.
By his masterful rendering, Kipling takes the reader to the classic world of a jungle, its animals, the prevalent 'jungle law', a daring boy growing amidst animals and becoming one with them, a village at the edge of the jungle and its inhabitants, the villanious 'Shere Khan, a battle where the 'hero' vanquishes the 'villain' in a climax. No wonder Disney made a feast out of this evergreen story that is most enjoyable to children and adults alike.

My thanks to the seller. The packaging was excellent. Mr. Kipling would be proud to know how far into the future his work is travelling.
This is a most wonderful story for children. It expands their horizons while they are still young. It lets them know how large the world really is.
And again, my thanks to the seller.

Can't improve on Kipling. The stories are a marvel and wonderfully enhanced by the lyrical illustrations of Nicola Bayley.
