The Jungle Book

a full-length adventure by Callan Stout
based on the stories in The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

In this adaptation of Kipling's famous stories, the beat of a drum and the cry of a wolf give way to the sounds of the ferocious tiger Shere Khan, hunting his latest prey.  But as the wolf pack gathers, they discover that he is hunting a human child, and they quickly rescue the infant Mowgli from the tiger’s teeth. Mother and Father Wolf adopt the small man-cub, and with the protection of Bagheera, the panther, and the teachings of Baloo the bear, Mowgli lives peacefully with the wolves. But as he outwits a band of jesting monkeys, escapes from a hypnotic python and learns the Laws of the Jungle, he will not be able to escape his inevitable showdown with Shere Khan.
