||The Book by Rudyard Kipling – and the 1967 cartoon.
||A young boy is left alone in the jungle and becomes a cub in a pack of wolves. But Shere Khan the tiger is out to get him, and in order to protect the pack he starts out for the man village with his mentor Bagheera the panther.
||The wolves, the tiger, the panther, the snake, the bear and the prehistoric ape all have their place and their motives for protecting using or hating the man cub. Some drama, some frightening moments and some enjoyment.
||Well worth seeing for anyone – never mind children – so get along to your local multiplex. It’s not often I say this. And keep watching as the credits roll. They are really good fun.
