It’s the last week of school and here’s what the library has lined up for you!
The Jungle Book, written by English author, Rudyard Kipling, has had many adaptations since it was first published in 1894. That was 124 year ago!
The Jungle Book tells the story of little Mowgli, a village boy who falls into the hands of a pack of wolves who raise him as their own in the Indian jungle. As he matures he starts to understand the ‘Law of the Jungle’ and the book follows his many adventures alongside the myriad creatures around him. Those include Baloo the bear and Bagheera the black panther, who become his tutors and protectors.
Some of the many adaptations of The Jungle Book are Disney’s 1967 animated version, and its most recent is the 2016 live-action remake. Watch the trailer below.
The film adaptation tells the story of Mowgli, an orphaned human boy who, guided by his animal guardians, sets out on a journey of self-discovery while evading the threatening Shere Khan.
The movie will be screening this week, and all library activities will be related to the series.
So join Mowgli and his animal friends on his journey this week at the library!
