Waterstones Says

Returning to the anarchic spirit of Kipling’s original Jungle Book, Rundell spins a new tale for Baloo, Shere Khan, Kaa, Bagheera and Mowgli, one of friendship, courage and joyful wildness.

Into the Jungle is a modern classic in the making, as Katherine Rundell creates charming and compelling origin stories for all Kipling's best-known characters, from Baloo and Shere Khan to Kaa and Bagheera. As Mowgli travels through the Indian jungle, this brilliantly visual tale, which weaves each short story together into a wider whole, will make readers both laugh and cry.

A gorgeously produced gift hardback with foiled cover, a ribbon marker and colour illustrations throughout by creative genius Kristjana S Williams, this is truly a book for all the family to treasure and share.

Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, first published by Macmillan in 1894, is one of the most enduring books of children's literature, delighting generations of children. Katherine Rundell has taken this as the basis of her new and enchanting tale, sharing the early years of favourite characters and informing the creatures they become in Kipling's classic, with stories about family and friendship, loyalty and jungle law, and a final battle which will decide the future of the forest.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'These beginnings resonate with echoes of Kipling's original and Just So Stories. They are written with mischievous scatological jokes, lively action and characteristic precision and surprise, because, as Baloo says, language "matters more than anything else". The stories savour the profusion of the rainforest, as do Williams's spectacularly lavish collages of engravings of animals and plants.' - The Sunday Times

'Far from defanging their source, Rundell's stories - interweaving Mother Wolf's belligerent past, Bagheera's early tragedy, and Baloo's gift for communication - only enrich its wildness, complemented by Kristjana Williams's lush full-colour illustrations.' - The Guardian 

'Witty, charming and steeped in the harsh truth of nature, this is an absolute must for all Jungle Book fans, young or old.' - The Daily Mail
