Set in magical, mysterious India, these tales of people and animals living together have appealed to children and adults alike since their first appearance more than a century ago. Most focus on Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves. As Baloo the sleepy brown bear, Bagheera the cunning black panther, Kaa the python, and his other animal friends teach their beloved “man-cub” the ways of the jungle, Mowgli gains the strength and wisdom he needs for his frightful fight with Shere Khan, the tiger who robbed him of his human family.
Over 100 years after these stories were written, The Jungle Book BookBench will bring an exotic twist to our Books about Town trail. Can you spot Bagheera, Kaa and Shere Khan?
