After Histoires comme ça, Justine Brax is once again inspired by Kipling in an adaptation of The Jungle Book. Original and literary, it brings us a first: the whole history of Mowgli’s life, told in chronological order!
Mowgli, a young… Read more Indian, is taken in by a family of wolves. Adopted by them, he is educated by the black panther Bagheera and Baloo the bear. All during his adventures, he gets to know the law of the jungle: who he can trust, why he should be wary of monkeys or how to avoid the tiger Shere Khan. Torn between his life with the wolves and his human origins , Mowgli never really belongs to either, but he always tries to adapt.
This is a new adaptation that tells the unabridged story of Mowgli. Maxime Rovère based it on the adventures of Mowgli from The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book, to bring us the whole, chronological story of the young boy. Readers will be delighted to rediscover this well-known story, often difficult to appreciate in the original, thanks to the flowing style of Maxime Rovère. This classic picture book is truly exceptional because of the literary nature of the adaptation, its production (twice as many pages as the other titles in the series, gold Pantone film to add a ‘precious’ touch…), and the visualisation. Justine Brax, the successful illustrator of Histoires comme ça, has once again deployed her talents for Kipling. Her brightly coloured images, using lots of different matters, take us right to the heart of the magical jungle.
