Grade 4-8?The law of the jungle?intense competition for one's niche?seems to apply to The Jungle Book, judging from the numerous editions jostling on the bookseller's shelf. The centenary of publication is the justification given for this avatar: but fortunately, it needs no excuse. All the Mowgli stories, and the perennial "Rikki-tikki-tavi," appear to glorious advantage in a handsome format. A manageable size, creamy paper, a clear typeface, and generous margins are as inviting as the 17 masterly full-page watercolors. They are beautifully composed, balanced but not static, freely handled but without any loss of clarity. Mowgli and the animals are characterized rather than idealized. Color and texture are subtle but lush. These contrasts perfectly complement the tension between order and "the jungle" evoked in Kipling's text. If survival of the fittest indeed applies to publishing, this edition should have a long life.?Patricia (Dooley) Lothrop Green, St. George's School, Newport, RI

Gr. 4^-7. In 18 rich watercolor paintings, Pinkney captures the sheer drama of the eight Mowgli stories and of the well-loved "Rikki-tikki-tavi." A handsome volume for collections of classic tales. Sally Estes

I wrote my thesis about Kipling about twenty years later.
My mother apologized, particularly because I had to buy a whole set of Kipling again. It wasn't cheap.
So I have loved the Jungle Books since I was five, and I'm 71 now. When I found these on Kindle, I instantly downloaded them, so they would be available for my next trip to the hospital. The grandchildren don't have Kindles, so I can't give them this set. When I'm able to get out and about, I look for books for them that I loved as a child. The oldest granddaughter got the Jungle Books several years ago, and went through them in a week. Their parents have asked us to give them books as gifts whenever possible. We do. And Kipling is high on the list.
His work will be honored for centuries to come.
The seller of this beautiful work has my genuine gratitude.
