The Jungle Book

Sarah Powell, illus. by Federica Frenna. Sizzle, $9.99 (48p) ISBN 978-1-4998-0685-4
Adapted by Powell from Kipling’s The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book, this interactive entry in the Seek and Find Classics series invites readers to take part in the unfolding story. In more than a dozen seek-and-find scenes keyed to significant moments in the plot, children are asked to find 10 objects and animals (and Mowgli, of course) in Frenna’s cinematic cartoons. The retro vibe of her artwork at times recalls the Disney adaptation but still offers a distinctive spin on the characters and drama of the tales. Also available: Alice in Wonderland. Ages 8–up.
