    The story is the same, but simplified a little for a younger audience. The illustrations are amazing, though. Totally worth the price of the book by themselves!

    The Jungle Book by Robert Hunter is the first in the Classics Here and Now series. This reimagined story includes dynamic illustrations rooted primarily in cool colors with pops of orange and other warm colors. In addition, the variety of page layouts and compositions create additional visual appeal and interest. The intriguing storyline has a more contemporary twist but honors portions of Rudyard Kipling’s original. My only complaint is that the dark font on a few of the darker illustrations ma The Jungle Book by Robert Hunter is the first in the Classics Here and Now series.

My only complaint is that the dark font on a few of the darker illustrations makes it hard to read in typical lighting. A copy of the book was provided for this honest review; however, no other compensation was provided.

    Won this book through a Goodreads.com giveaway. While the story of the Jungle Book is very familiar to all of us, I was a bit let down with this book and the reason was simply the color scheme and pictures. There was a page or two that it was difficult to read what was written because the page was quite dark and so was the text. The pictures of the story, this is just my opinion, were not those that would capture a child's attention and draw them into the story being told.

    THE JUNGLE BOOK: MOWGLI’S STORY by Robert Frank Hunter is adopted from the classic tale by Kipling. This children’s book is a nice introduction to the world of classic literature and just in time (April, 2016) to act as a tie-in to the live action movie. The narration is stripped down to fit within the 40 over-sized pages but the essential story is there.

    The illustrations are beautiful in this retelling of The Jungle Book. Hunter reimagines the story of Mowgli, exploring how he came to be in the jungle and the roles of Shere Khan, Bagheera, Baloo, and the wolf pack in the life and training of the Man Cub. In this tale, we see the same stubborn Mowgli in a bit of a different setting and with a different purpose. Imaginative and exciting retelling of Kipling's tale.

    This book is as good as I remember from childhood. I love the story of the boy who grows up in the jungle and makes friends with the animals.
