From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4–Tableaus of amazing size and intricacy unfold–and then unfold more–with each leaf's turn in this adaptation of Kipling's classic tale. Reinhart begins with a broad jungle scene for baby Mowgli's rescue from Shere Khan. He sets the lad's rescue from the monkeys against a towering ruin; takes him to the treasure chambers where White Cobra lurks behind a flap; pairs his first encounter with humans to a startling, savage leaping tiger; shows him enlisting a herd of elephants to destroy the village; and finishes with his farewell to a reunion of downcast animal friends on craggy Council Rock. Along with smaller pop-ups, the text is tucked beneath flaps in one or two corners of each scene. That text has been dramatically shortened, but Reinhart preserves at least vestiges of the original's stately language. Along with being a natural centerpiece for displays, this book provides a memorable introduction to both the film and the full-length literary work.–John Peters, New York Public Library

I made the right choice. She loved it. When Sher-Khan jumped out of the page at her, her eyes got wide and she took her fist and carefully put it in his mouth. And then she laughed. Her brother, who is nearly 5, was impressed too. Since he loves sharks (both of them do), he gets that one for his May birthday.
I can't tell you enough about the quality of these books. They are for children of all ages (why can't grownups have pop-ups?) and collector's items.
I want to give them the whole series, including the Sabuda collaborations.
You absolutely cannot go wrong. The story was adapted for this book, and until my granddaughter is ready to read Kipling "like a big girl", she has lost nothing.
I hope you will consider this for your young ones.
I am a writer and a published author (see my books on Amazon) and now I think I'd like to try making pop-ups of my own. What a project!
I can't drawer!
A few days later: I received my new copy, and it is perfect. So I am now giving it five stars.
