You are never to young or too old to enjoy the wJungle Book

Disney has created a fun interpretaion of Kipling's masterpiece. That said I'd encourage everyone with children of around 10 upwards to read the book.

Kipling uses archaic language sometimes which may be difficult for younger children, YET somehow he manages to bring his characters to life in a magical manner.

Jungle Book is a collection of short stories including the magnificent mongoose Rikki Tikki Tavi.

You are never to young or too old to enjoy the wonderful book (or even the DVD)

Underrated, ahead of its time...

watching this movie, it is hard to imagine it was made in 1942, during the War... many reviews say that the fun factor is missing...perhaps a younger, cuter, Mowgli as in 2016 version would have added to the fun. Sabu is perhaps a bit too old for the role (he was 18), but the producers probably were trying to capitalize on his star value after Thief of Bagdad, and his success in the better rated Elephant Boy (made when he was a cute 13 year old), which is based on the Toomai of he Elephants chapter of the Jungle Book.
