English The Jungle Book ItalianoI didn't know that The Jungle Book was a collection of tales Thanks to the Disney movie I had always identified this novel with the story of Mowgli the man cub raised by a pack of wolves But another bedtime reading to my daughter makes me discover that this book is made up of seven stories and only three of them tell about Mowgli Mowgli's Brothers Kaa's Hunting and Tiger Tiger The search for a place to live safe from hunters is told in The White Seal Rikki Tikki Tavi presents us with a nice domesticated mongoose Toomai of the Elephants tells the story of a child with great talent Finally an unusual night meeting is told in Her Majesty's Servants And to the well known characters of Bagheera Baloo Kaa Shere Khan and Akela are added Rikki Tikki Tavi Nag Nagaina Kotick Sea Catch Billy the mule and many othersProbably this is not a maserpiece anyway Kipling produces an enjoyable read The Jungle Book or the untamed beauty of wildlifeVote 7Non sapevo che Il Libro della Giungla fosse una raccolta di racconti grazie alla Disney lo avevo sempre identificato con la storia di Mowgli il cucciolo di uomo che viene allevato da un branco di lupi Invece l'ennesima lettura della buonanotte a mia figlia mi fa scoprire che uesto libro è fatto da sette racconti di cui solo tre narrano le vicende di Mowgli I Fratelli di Mowgli La Caccia di Kaa e Tigre Tigre La ricerca di un luogo in cui vivere al sicuro dai cacciatori è raccontata in La Foca Bianca Rikki Tikki Tavi ci presenta una simpatica mangusta addomesticata Toomai degli Elefanti racconta le vicende di un bambino con un grande talento Infine un'insolita riunione notturna è raccontata in I Servitori della Regina Ed ai noti personaggi di Bagheera Baloo Kaa Shere Khan e Akela si aggiungono Rikki Tikki Tavi Nag Nagaina Kotick Sea Catch Billy il mulo e tanti altriProbabilmente non un capolavoro ma Kipling produce comunue una lettura piacevole Il libro della giungla ovvero la bellezza selvaggia degli animaliVoto 7

Iungla viene adottato da un branco di lupi ed è protagonista di vari racconti si unisce ad altre meno famose ma altrettanto suggestive come uella di un'eroica mangusta o uella di un giovane cavalcatore di elefanti Dal 'Libro della giungla' sono stati tratti numerosi adattamenti cinematografici e televisivi celebre il cartone animato della Disney ma uesto libro è stato anc. “Welcome to the jungleWe've got fun 'n' gamesWe got everything you wantHoney we know the names”The opening poem of The Jungle Book “Now Rann the Kite brings home the night” etc is much elegant than Axl Rose’s effort but I feel it would be much nicer for you to read it in the context of the bookNow if you are looking for a review from someone with an in depth knowledge of Rudyard Kipling’s works you had better look elsewhere My Kipling fu is so feeble I did not even know The Jungle Book was an anthology not a novel about a badass little boy who blazed a trail for Tarzan It didn’t even occur to me to read this book until I saw the trailer for the new 2015 movie a few days agoI’m just going to run through the list of the stories then1 Mowgli's BrothersThis surprised me it’s basically the entire story of Mowgli as I know it from the movies animated and live action I wonder if Shere Khan is the inspiration for Chaka Khan cue eye rolls If you only read one story from this book what a silly notion read this one2 Hunting Song of the Seeonee PackNice poem all the poems in this book are nice3 Kaa's HuntingThis goes back up the timeline from the conclusion of “Mowgli's Brothers” it features Mowgli being kidnaped by monkeys At no point does Mowgli say “Take your stinking paws off me you damn dirty ape” Kipling was not into pop culture references I am Any way Mowgli is chiefly aided by Kaa the python and his very particular set of skills “Trust in me”but I didn't expect a Spanish Inuisition4 Road Song of the Bandar LogNice poem5 “Tiger Tiger”Mowgli has a rematch with Shere Khan and finds human society not to his liking the beds especially I don’t blame him6 Mowgli's SongGreat song especially the guitar solo7 The White SealKotick the white seal is like the Columbus among seals Very good story Especially when Kotick decides he has had enough of the ignorant seals and their jibes then proceeds to hand their asses to them They did not know he has been working out with some marathon swimming8 Lukannon“A sort of very sad seal National Anthem” Thank you Literaturepagecom9 “Rikki Tikki Tavi”Laugh at his silly name at your own peril Rikki tikki tavi is one badass mofo of a mongoose I guess he could be the prototype for Ninja Turtles K9 Hong Kong Phooey and other superhero animals10 Darzee's ChantDarzee is a tailorbird from Rikki tikki tavi’s story with a penchant of breaking into songs at the most inappropriate moment After Rikki tikki tavi is allowed to knock himself out with full blown hero worship through this song11 Toomai of the ElephantsAn Indian boy takes a clandestine ride on an elephant’s back and witnesses a huge herd of elephants performing “We Will Rock You” “You got blood on yo' faceYou big disgraceWavin' your trunk all over the place”12 Shiv and the Grasshopper“The song that Toomai's mother sang to the baby”13 Her Majesty's ServantsAh Oh dear For me this story is like throwing an eel at a marble wall it just won’t stick I listened to it twice and I still can’t remember what it’s about Somethihg to do with a bunch of animals nattering about something completely devoid of interest14 Parade Song of the Camp AnimalsRelated to the previous story No thanksThat’s it then I enjoyed most of the stories poems and song except number 13 and 14 as mentioned aboveDefinitely recommended especially the first story which is a bear necessity Hey Cecily I managed to sneak one in Librivox Audiobook very nicely readperformed by Phil Chenevert Thank you

IndiaThe illustrated Jungle Book is a mixed bag of positives and negatives and if your only experience of the story is from the films then you are in for a surprising revelation Firstly the Jungle Book is not one story but an anthology of 7 short stories and 7 songs and understandably with some appealing than others The contents includeMowgli’s Brothers StoryHunting Song of the Seeonee Pack SongKaa’s Hunting StoryRoad Song of the Bandar Log Song“Tiger Tiger” StoryMowgli’s Song SongThe White Seal StoryLukannon Song“Rikki Tikki Tavi” StoryDarzee’s Chant SongToomai of the Elephants StoryShiv and the Grasshopper SongHer Majesty’s Servants StoryParade Song of the Camp Animals SongThis is also not a child’s book it is dark threatening and violent Even Baloo while teaching Mowgli the ways and language of the jungle leaves him heavily bruised The general story we all know as Mowgli the Man Cub the Frog is found as an infant and reared by wolves taught and watched over by Baloo and Bagheera and hunted by Shere Khan However if you’ve only seen the films and are unaware of the book then expect a few surprises The role of characters are transformed interactions are altered and plots are changed Death is a typical outcome often clinical and ruthless but with a purpose The written narrative and dialogue from Rudyard Kipling reminds us just how great a writer he is how he constructs a layered storyline and uses such lyrical prose to describe the scene and activities Each story starts with a little poetic verse that magically blends with the storyOnly the first 3 stories relate to Mowgli the others are a seal mongoose elephants and the ensemble of animals in Her Majesty’s Servants This is an illustrated version with two types of images; black and white sketch which are exceptionally well drawn and full colour prints that seem to vary in uality This is a Kindle version and the formatting with the images is really poor and inconsistent I actually can't believe how poor the formatting isI wasn’t uite sure with this and would probably rate it accurately as 35 stars
