From the moment a little naked cub wanders into the lair of Father Wolf and Mother Wolf to the moment when the master of the jungle returns to his own people, Mowgli's adventures comprise a fable of human life. Along with these stories are other animal tales. This is a magnificent new edition of the best-loved story featuring over 80 beautiful illustrations by award-winning Australian illustrator Robert Ingpen. The third book in Templar's best-selling classics series illustrated by Robert Ingpen that includes "Peter Pan and Wendy" (2004) and "Treasure Island" (2005).

My nine-year-old daughter is in the scouts and wanted to read this. We both chose this version on the strength of the illustrations we saw in the Look Inside feature, and we weren't disappointed. It's a weighty book and a challenging read for a nine-year-old, but its size and weight together with the quality of the illustrations have led her to say 'This is my treasure'. It's clearly very special to her. She loves curling up with it on the sofa, reads it whenever she can and loves talking about it. Definitely a good choice.

Lovely book, fabulously illustrated. A real special book and one to keep on the bookshelf, would recommend for any child's library and would (and have) purchased other stories in the same format.

A really beautiful edition with fantastic illustrations by Robert Ingpen. A book I have bought as a gift and will struggle to give away! It will go to a very very good home. It is so good to know there are books this appealing out there!

This is a lovely book which has been enhanced by the beautiful illustrations of Mr Ingpen.

The children and parents I have given books from this series are impressed by the lovely illustrations of books they know well.
