Booklist Online - Francisca Goldsmith

"Necessarily vastly abridged to maintain the publisher’s page count, and without referencing Kipling’s idiom, this graphic novelization nonetheless offers readers a rich retelling. Pages pop with nicely varied frames that befit their content, and characters’ speech and captions are appropriately assigned rather than being seemingly random text attributions. The deeply and broodingly colored images, however, are what make this a good read, with animal-appropriate movement, expressive faces, and animated body language. While certainly no substitute for Kipling’s own storytelling prowess, this is, nonetheless, a worthwhile version to provide for visual learners, whether as a lead-in to the original or as a stand-alone experience. The tight binding may frustrate some but the book won’t wear out." - Booklist Online
