Rated 4 out of 5 by from great! A wonderful story that can be enjoyed by all

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really fun Not what I was expecting at all - it bore very little resemblance to the Jungle Book of my childhood - and yet it was still fun and entertaining. Obviously, some of the stories had a little bit more staying power than others (the talking war animals one was just kind of depressing), and I think the disjointed pace of the Mowgli-centric stories would put kids off a bit, but on the whole I enjoyed myself. The language is definitely dated, but I thought that made it kind of fun to read. Overall, a piece of history I'm glad I read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A classic. Definitely a story that most people know due to the many movies made about it but even with that, it's a great addition to a young readers library.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Childhood classic After watching the recently released film my daughter expressed an interest in reading the book and we have both enjoyed revisiting my childhood. I love Rudyard Kiplings narrative style he is the perfect story teller and brings the characters to life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mostly well done The Jungle book story was great as I expected as was Rikki Tikki but I did see a noticeable drop off in the other stories included in this book. While their message is important, the same quality writing found with the previously was lacking in the rest. Kipling is a great author and I look forward to reading more, but hope they are more along the lines of Mowgli's adventures and less from seals looking for safety from humans.

Seven wonderful short stories are bound together to delight and facinate readers. Anyone who has not read The Jungle Book is sorely missing out. Wonderful for bedtime reading, this is a must read book for old and young alike.
