On The Air: The Jungle Book (2010)

This is the last of Discovery Family's four (not three, as I'd surmised previously) acquired series. Maybe DisFam should consider a marketing deal with libraries.....!

Kidding aside, The Jungle Book launched in India in 2010, and was picked up by DisFam last year, so keep your eyes open for it and check your listings. DisFam will be happy you did.

Anyway, the series continues the development and adventures of Mowgli, the human "cub" from Rudyard Kipling's classic tale, and the lessons he learns are meant to be imparted to the youngsters watching at home.

Right now, let's scope out "Mowgli's Cub".

Yes, it's a familiar trope, as old as time itself, finding a lost cub/child and venturing to find the mother and/or father. Good stuff.

Rating: A.
