The Jungle Book: Returning to Rudyard Kipling – Episode 32

This week, I revisit Rudyard Kipling and his famous feral child Mowgli.  The Jungle Book is one of my favorite Disney stories, but I did not like the book as a child.  How does it read now that I’m older?  (And when is that new movie coming out?!)
