My rating: 2 of 5 stars
The title says it all. I haven’t even read the Jungle Book, so I didn’t know what to expect. These short stories for children that explain the origin of things are “so-so.” Very orally based, there is a cadence and hum to them that strikes the fancy. The content leaves a little to be desired, though, unless I’m just grown too old to enjoy imaginative children’s literature. This is possible.
