The artistic aspect of this book cannot go unsaid; it is amazing! Every page is filled with extremely colorful and intricate pop-ups that show the reader Mowgli’s world both in and out of the jungles of India. The life of the animals that live in the jungle are more easily imaginable and relatable thanks to the illustrations and 3-D pop ups. The illustrations and pop ups of the jungle and Mowgli’s village are mind blowing, but they overshadow the text. It is a shame since the author filled the pages with colorful descriptions of the characters and events. For instance, the author had Father Wolf say, “He is as hairless as a frog” when he first layed his eyes on baby Mowgli. I also appreciated the author for retelling the story in a way that helps the human reader realize the difference in perspective between him/herself and the animal characters, which is obvious when Father Wolf says, “Look! A baby! A man’s cub!” Just for the artistic value of the book and the author’s obvious attempts to change the perspective of the reader, I would recommend this book to readers of all ages. ( )

This story gives even more life to Mowglis story of adventure, family, and fun. Pop ups surprise and enchant the reader even more to the storyline and would be enjoyed by boys and girls of any age! ( )

This was an AMAZING book!! The Pop-Up art made the story come alive. This book holds an already very creative story and Matthew Reinhart made it even more creative. This book can be read to children of all ages. I enjoy this book so much that I read it more than once. The story of Mowgli and his adventure in the jungle will never grow old. The story of family and love really shines in this book. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"In this stunning retelling of a phenomenal classic, honor is tested, battles of good over evil are waged, and the importance of family reigns supreme. True to Rudyard Kipling's original story, tree branches literally draw the read in to this tale of Mowgli the Man Cub exploring the ruins of the Lost City, riding atop thundering elephants, and facing a fierce tiger attack!"--p.
