Audible recommends an audience of 8 years+ for this title.
This is not the kid version. Older kids would probably enjoy, but great for adults too. I enjoyed this book while walking on the hot and humid nature trails of No Georgia in the Spring. I often felt like I was in the jungle and even did not freak out so much when I saw a few snakes, likely as a result of feeling so tuned into the jungle atmosphere. Love the music and different voices. Well done!

I had to listen to this over and over because I loved the characters so much! Great voice talents. Plus amazing actual animal sounds. I'm glad that I own this, because I will be listening to it many more times! And I will be staring it with my children.

The various voices/characters was great. The sound effects (weather, growls, forest sounds, rumbling herd, etc) added a solid ambience!

I bought this book for my eight-year-old godson on a road trip from North Carolina to New York. He has never been in the car this long so I wasn't sure how he'd do. This book was absolutely exceptional! Between the wonderful narration, music and sound effects, it was so easy to get engrossed in the story. This performance will make you feel like you are in a theater and the acting and music is so amazing you will be able to visualize exactly what's happening. I may have enjoyed it even more than he, lol!! It was a nice distraction for a few hours between his toys and electronic games. I hadn't thought of it in advance but was so glad when it came to me while I was listening to one of my own books. Now it will always be something we plan for. Thanks audible, once again you have made us very happy!!!!!

Listened to this start to end in one sitting with my 9 yr old daughter, totally loved the realistic background with the superb narration. There were nuggets of wisdom that don't come out in a movie. Nit? Maybe Bhaaloo instead of Baloo :)

When I downloaded this selection I did not notice that it was a dramatization of the Mowgli Stories, and felt some concern when the introduction stated this fact. I don't always like cast readings with theatrical sound effects, preferring to create the theater in my mind. This was a delightful exception. The cast was superb with the voice acting, and the jungle sounds created the proper atmosphere, especially the wonderful bird songs. I was enchanted to hear favorite stories told this way. Highly recommended whether you are new to the Jungle Book or already know it well.

Wonderful! ACTING WAS SUPERB! I'M PROUD TO ADD THIS RECORDING TO MY COLLECTION. It may be a children's
story but it still has the power to entrance this "adult."

This is by far one of the best books i have ever plus stened to on audible ever. I loved how there is action at every corner and how there are narraters for each character. Thank you for making this a memory of my life in the book section of my brain.

Where does Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
The Mowgli Stories are better than The Jungle Book, which I just read and found that Kipling included non-Mowgli stories about white seals, Rikki Tikki Tav,i and the Inuit. By the Mowgli Stories narrowing the focus, it made the collection better than the original. Nonetheless, both versions rate high among the best collection of short stories, but The Mowgli Stories have the feel of a novel.
What did you like best about this story?
The dramatization, acting, and sound effects were superb and placed me in an Indian jungle. This was better than the movie.
Which scene was your favorite?
The White Cobra in the Cold Lairs chilled and entertained me as my favorite scene because it was left out of the movie and animated adaptations. I was moved by the blind white cobra who guarded the treasure. He meets a happy ending. Those who took the ankus after Mowgli did not have happy endings.
Any additional comments?
The Mowgli Stories adaptation is better than the movie and the original book. By focusing on Mowgli and not on the the distracting other stories, a compelling narrative arc was created which made me want to cry at the end when Mowgli grew up and away for the jungle he loved.

Would you consider the audio edition of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book to be better than the print version?
I have not read the print version. I had only watched the disney (cartoon) movie.
What did you like best about this story?
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
The White Cobra was my favorite I forgot the character's name.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I played this on a road trip, so I listened to it as I drove.
Any additional comments?
The jungle book is a classic, and this presentation does it justice. The soundtrack makes it even better.

I knew only the sugared Disney version and I was amazed amd touched by this beautiful original! Wonderfully played and acted... I simply could not stop until the 2,5 hours were over!!
Highly recommend for going back to a delightful children's fantasy world, where animals have a moral codex and respect I wish we humans also had! :-)
