Spirit of the Jungle, by real-life adventurer Bear Grylls, is a heart-stopping, contemporary adventure inspired by Rudyard Kipling's classic The Jungle Book.
When teenager Mak discovers the whole family is going on a trip to India, his heart sinks. He's happiest at home playing computer games and practising his magic tricks in his room - and he's about to be thrown into the busy, colourful heart of India.
When they arrive, his dad suggests a trip into the jungle as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. But as they set out along the Wainganga River, the family are caught in a flash storm and Mak' is washed away.
Alone in the jungle, he must learn to survive. Dodging poachers, poisonous snakes and evil monkeys, Mak finds help and friendship from other jungle creatures. But can he gather all his skills to make it back to civilization?
