I found the artwork to be superb, from the human characters to the animals. The detail that accompanied the characters is well drawn and easy to understand. It is obvious the artist has years of art experience, being able to create this type of book with the detail you see. Stories such as The Jungle Book are based on much longer books, and these graphic novels must present the right words (and the right amount) to move the story along to let the reader experience the story to its fullest, and this book certainly did not disappoint.
This book was a quick and thoroughly enjoyable read, and hard to put down. With each new story came a set of exciting new characters, adventures and background history of its people. You see a culture that may contrast sharply with the one you’ve grown up with, and it goes far it describing the various castes in this society. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Manga comics, especially for those who embrace adventure.

This classic is fun to read, but the story, with the short stories included, are good stories. However, this manga version of a classic is a bit choppier than I would like. I personally wouldn't pick this book for the first classic manga story for a reluctant reader. I would start with either Great Expectations or The Scarlet Letter first b/c it's an easier and more fluid story. However, if a student needs to read a classic book, and there is a graphic novel or manga version of that book, then a child that doesn't like reading, struggles to read, or has a learning disability would greatly benefit from reading the manga/graphic novel version of that book.
I received this book from Myrick Marketing in exchange for my review and honest opinion. All of my thoughts, opinions, and words are my own.
The Jungle Book is a collection of stories about Mowgli, the boy raised by animals in the Indian jungle and the stories of several animals in their own unique adventures.
I’ve read the original stories many years ago and it was refreshing to go through them again in such a light way. The drawings are magical and the original stories didn’t lose any of their charms or sense. Being a fan of the Disney version of the novel, I could almost hear the songs in my head as the respective characters came to play, such as Mowgli and the elephants.
On the contrary of the other manga classics published so far, this graphic novel can also be read to children. The language is easy to understand and the illustrations are very appealing and pleasant to look at.
This review was originally published on NetGalley.
I love that the song parts were included in the manga, cause they were such a fun part in the actual book. Also once again, the story with the white seal was on the top of my favorite stories, even though I truly love all these stories.
The artwork was amazing as expected.
I can't recommend these Manga Classics highly enough.
