Listeners should treat themselves to this full-cast audio of this tidy production of Kipling's stories of Mowgli and his jungle friends. Richard E. Grant, Bill Bailey, and a well-chosen cast of British actors make the magic of this audio drama, along with a fine soundscape punctuated with Shere Khan's roar or the howl of the wolf pack. Timing, pace, and elegant storytelling are all here. But perhaps the best aspect of this audio collection is the opportunity for listeners to banish the animation that usurped Mowgli, Baloo, and Bagheera and restore them to a rich and vivid life in the Indian jungle. This audiobook will delight families with the engaging, classic storytelling of Mowgli and his pack, and reacquaint old friends with these beloved characters. R.F.W.
