Meet Electric Type’s The Jungle Book: The Story of Mowgli and Shere Khan.
When Electric Type was founded in 2010, our goal was to build a better digital book for the iPad. We wanted our first title to be a well-loved story, so we chose the Rudyard Kipling classic The Jungle Book. The original text has been adapted and modified to a kid-friendly (read: parent-friendly) seven chapters, each of which are perfect to read as a short bedtime story or in epic succession.
We brought on board acclaimed Australian illustrator Nigel Buchanan, who has created a series of lush, beautiful images. A “Read to Me” option, with a dramatic performance of the text by Emmy-nominated voice actor Rich Orlow, brings the characters and story to life. Sound effects, music, and interactive features take young and adult readers on Mowgli’s journey to rid the jungle of the ferocious tiger Shere Kahn.
