The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

Posted in Animals, English Literature, Heroes and Heroines, Historical articles, History, Literature, Nature, Wildlife on Sunday, 22 November 2015

This is a wonderfully cinematic picture of Mowgli, Shere Khan the Tiger and Baloo the Bear from The Jungle Book. The vivid colours of the jungle, the warning roar of the tiger and tense expression on both Mowgli and the bear, create an exotic atmosphere of adventure and suspense around a boy and his animal friends about whom we care very much.
