    Personal Response: I think this book has lots of different types of characters. I was always interested and wanted to keep reading. The author needs to do a better job of changing up the plot. I found that I always knew what would happen next. Plot Summary: A boy who lives in the jungle is known to all the jungle creatures. He was an outcast of his tribe.

I found that I always knew what would happen next. Plot Summary: A boy who lives in the jungle is known to all the jungle creatures. He was an outcast of his tribe. They threw him out of the village because he was different than the rest. The boy makes many friends on his journey to kill the great tiger. He is faced with many more challenges than any normal boy. He must defeat the great tiger, and show he is the true king of the jungle. Recommendation: I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in animals. Although animals do die throughout the book. You would not want to be emotional about animals. People with lots of creativity would love this book. There is lots of action. Characterization: Mowgli started off as a little boy. He was scared, and he was different from most people. He lived in the jungle, and he was learning new things. The boy that started out as a weak and scared boy would slowly make himself a man. He becomes a man when he defeats the great tiger. Mowgli then becomes king of the jungle.

    I think the theme of this book is always listen to the wiseman and always trust somebody when they tell you to do something

    I've only ever watched the movies before. I finally read it & some parts are quite different from the movies! For example,there is no giant king monkey. Also, nearly half the book is dealing with the man villagers: when he goes back to them and their conflicts. I've only ever watched the movies before.

    This was a buddy read with my ten-year-old brother. I have wanted to read this since I was a kid but was never able to get around to it. My brother and I both enjoyed it and found that it had some great lessons in morality that were enjoyable to discuss after each reading session.

    I thought that this book was a really good read! The characters evolving in the story told all the empathy for the characters emotions/feelings towards each other. The story is about a little child (which is latter named Mogli) and his forest friends running into all sorts of adventures and perils. The thing that I really liked about this book is that Mogli was always getting himself into some kink of trouble, and it would land him in the middle of some crazy adventure.

    It's out of print, but a lot of people remember this abridged series of "classics" and they're still around (I found this one--in like-new condition--in a thrift store). I've had some kids take to them but I find the format--pretty much a dumbing down--works better with H.G. Wells and Jules Verne type of stuff. Maybe some kid will get into this one, because the basic story is wonderful (even if it is only the Mowgli part) but to me the text and illustrations are lackluster and bland.

Little of Kipling's magical prose remains.

    This was one of the first big chapter books I ever remember reading by myself! Secong Grade! I loved it! I read it all the time! Honestly, this and the Call of the Wild are probably what first started my love of reading. I owe a lot to this book! I wish I could have grown up with wolves! Man, I'm so jealous! And the movie totally screwed it up. Why is Kaa a bad guy? Really, now. Although I do admit the Bare Necessities is my ringtone... Great memories with this one!

    This was a perfect book for Will. This isn't the edition we read - ours was a Junior something - so it was the original story (not the Disney version) but not the original language. We read parts of this book together and Will read parts of it himself. The book led to lots of good discussions with Will and was generally highly interesting to him

    Personally, I wouldn't give this book four stars, but my four year old and six year old really liked it. I think they really liked all the animals and the fighting. We read this every night, my six year old reading as much as he wanted and then giving it to me for a turn.

    I love reading these books to my 6 yr old and 4 yr old. The 6yr old was captivated, but the younger child had a harder time even with the pictures. I would let him play, and then he would stop to look at the pictures.

    This book was okay. I enjoyed the personification of the animals but I dislike the inclusion of the people. The book was slow paced and boring for most of the time. The plot with shere kahn could have been the main plot instead of killing him off in the middle of the book.

    I can't believe that is the first time I have read The Jungle Book! Of course I have seen the Disney movie many times! I was surprised how different the book was from the movie, although I shouldn't be!

    Another book given to me by the same friend who gave me Pollyanna and Fright Time. I fell in love with the talking animals aspect. And Bagheer was defintely my favourite. Might read it again before seeing the movie.

    I read this with my 5 & 7 year old boys. We all loved Mowgli's adventures. The illustrations on every page helped to keep their attention. Their only complaint was that Mowgli went back to man - they couldn't understand why he would leave the dream of living with jungle animals. :) I read this with my 5 & 7 year old boys.

    Very good book. The illustrations are ok, nothing more. But the story is amazing and I loved the Disney version and now that I discovered the original one I just love it.
