This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
Thanks to the wonderful illustrations by Manuela Adreani, an internationally famous artist gifted with a unique and delicate sensibility, young readers will be able to discover or rediscover Rudyard Kipling's timeless classic, which explores feeling like love, faithfulness, and friendship . . . By browsing the pages, they will find themselves thrown into the dense, impenetrable jungle, together with Mowgli, to confront together its dangerous challenges and the threats of the fearsome tiger, Shere Khan! Manuela Adreani's romantic drawings, inspired, among other things, by the complex patterns on old fabrics and brocades so dear to the Flemish painters, will transport the little readers into a world of enchantment and magic: they will really immerse them in the story they are reading.
