Joyful J's #atozchallenge

Day 10 of the April A to Z Challenge

A Book Extravaganza - featuring classics and some of my favorite books

Classic: The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

Synopsis: Run with them. Or fear them:
Bagheera the Panther: A silken shadow of boldness and cunning.
Kaa the Python: A thirty foot battering ram driven by a cool, hungry mind.
Baloo the Bear: who keeps the lore and the Law, and teaches the Secret Words.
Rikki the Mongoose: The young protector who sings as he slays.
Akela and Raksha the Wolves: Demon warriors of the Free People.
Shere Khan the Tiger: The dreaded enemy of all.
And Mowgli the Man-cub: The orphan baby raised by the wolves, taught by Baloo, trained by Bagheera and Kaa. The sorcerer who knows the ways of the jungle and speaks the language of the wild.



  1. I'm covering a creative writing class this week. Yesterday's question was about movies adapted from some other source. The Jungle Book came up as being adapted from the cartoon. I needed to remind them that it was a book first. Sigh.
