With clever use of puppets and original music, The Jungle Book is suitable for all the family, especially children aged five to nine.
Come to the Indian Jungle and meet the man cub Mowgli who is brought up by a family of wolves. Follow his adventure as he encounters Baloo the bear who teaches him “The Law of the Jungle”, Bagheera the panther who teaches him how to survive.
There’s also Akala, the head of the wolf pack; Kaa, the sinister snake, the naughty monkeys and of course the mighty tiger Shere Khan who means to hunt Mowgli down and eat him! As Mowgli grows up it becomes clear that he will have to confront Shere Khan if he wants to stay alive.
