The 2016 Disney film adaptation of The Jungle Book is the latest artistic effort to capture the drama and excitement of the enduring tales Rudyard Kipling created more than 120 years ago. This Campfire Classics adapatation faithfully renders Kipling's original language and plot details in a stunning graphic novel format.
The adventure begins the night a boy, Mowgli, escapes certain doom after being trapped in the perilous clutches of the tiger Shere Khan. To protect Mowgli and to defy the tiger, the Seeonee wolf pack adopts the boy, giving him the nickname "Man-Cub". Other animals--a panther, bear, and python--teach the boy how to survive as Shere Khan continually pursues him through the jungle. Eventually, Mowgli and Shere Khan square off in an epic battle, from which only one will survive.
