Kipling, Rudyard The Jungle Book, 305 pg. Looking Glass Library, 2012 $10.99 Language G (0 swears, 0 “f”): Mature Content: PG, Violence: PG
This is a beautiful edition of the classic tale of Mowgli and his friends Baloo and the clever black panther Bagheera. It is a hardbound nicely bound edition. It includes both volumes of the originally published work. It also adds the popular “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi.” The illustrations are the original art when it was published in the newspaper. The introduction is given by Neil Gaiman. It’s a nice 5 x 71/2 in size. Easy to read even though it’s a hardcover. I also enjoyed the poems at the beginning of each chapter. I compared it to a version I have in my library. I liked this one much better - more comprehensive, more complete. This is a delightful version of a classic book.
