The Jungle Book (Stuart Paterson stage version)

By Rudyard Kipling Adapted by Stuart Paterson

Paperback £7.99£6.39

EPUB £7.99£6.39

Rudyard Kipling's classic jungle tales, in an acclaimed stage adaptation by Stuart Paterson, 'a master of children's theatre' (Scotsman).

Saved from the jaws of Shere Khan the tiger, Mowgli must learn the Laws of the Jungle from Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther to survive. A brave little man cub grows into a confident and care-free young boy, but danger is never far away and Shere Khan is hungry for revenge. As Mowgli faces each peril and pitfall, he must decide whether he belongs in the world of men or with the animal kingdom.

Stuart Paterson reimagines Kipling's much-loved stories for a new generation in a vibrant, colourful family adventure that's full of surprises.

This adaptation was first staged by Birmingham Stage Company in 2004.
