Hunting Mowgli
Hunting Mowgli
by: Max Media, Inc., Boston: a GrandStories Book
year: 2001

by Maxim Antinori,
Language: English
Illustrated by the author (black and white cover and interiors)
Paperback 14 x 21.5 cm

A short story (only 44 pages) about Mowgli encountering a human hunter.
Antinori writes well enough, but the characters and situations are not the way Kipling would have written them, and Antinori even kills off a major character near the end. The illustrations are stark and grim, which does reflect the tone of the story. I have a feeling that this book might be too upsetting for children even though it seems to be aimed at children rather than adults. (Lee M)
