Graphic Novel of the Month

 The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book

The adventure of a lifetime begins on the night a man-cub escapes certain doom at the hands of the tiger Shere Khan. In defiance of the tiger, the boy, Mowgli, is taken in by the Seeonee Wolf Pack and made a member. Mowgli comes of age in the jungle and is taught how to survive by Bagheera, the black panther; Baloo, the brown bear; and Kaa, the python. Always lurking nearby, though, is Shere Khan, who is determined that Mowgli will be his prey. But the hunter soon becomes the hunted when the boy and the tiger square off in an epic struggle in which only one will survive. But greater than his fight with Shere Khan is the conflict Mowgli faces as he tries to find a place among wolves and humans – neither of whom truly accept him as one of their own.
