One day the little boy Mowgli, a foundling, finds himself in the middle of the jungle, an Indian jungle full of colors, but also full of dangers. A wolf comes across the child. But what is a child, who cannot even speak, doing in the world of the wolves, snakes, tigers, and other dangerous animals? Can a small boy survive out in the wilderness? He must understand that someone has to take care of him. Is he hungry? Would he perhaps like a bone? No, honey is likely better. A bear attends to him and becomes Mowgli’s guardian. Still, Mowgli has to learn how to survive on his own. He sets off on an expedition. Gradually, he starts to understand that life in the wilderness requires wisdom and cleverness, even though he is saved at first from every difficult situation by the bear, for he is secretly watching almost each and every movement the boy makes. It would almost be paradise, if it wasn’t for the shady tiger creeping around…
A story about courage and friendship that’s also full of thrill and danger.
