The Jungle Book|丛林之书

你一定听说过那个森林之子的故事:在印度古老热带丛林里,人类男孩Mowgli从小被狼群抚养长大,在足智多谋的黑豹Bagheera、憨厚善良的棕熊Baloo,还有其他动物家人和朋友的帮助陪伴下,逐渐成长为一个勇敢而机智的丛林少年……最近正在热映的迪斯尼电影“奇幻森林”就改编自这本经典儿童文学名著《The Jungle Book》。

 

《The Jungle Book》和后续的《The Second Jungle Book》加起来一共有14章,作者吉卜林是诺贝尔文学奖获得者,他自古老的动物寓言、佛教哲学、以及对印度的童年记忆中汲取灵感,从印度热带丛林里的神奇狼孩,到在北极莽莽冰原中寻找乐土的白海豹,以非凡的创造力讲述了一段又一段引人入胜的历险。那些妙不可言的动物故事着实令人着迷,然而《The Jungle Book》远不止是炉火旁讲给孩子听的童话,书中那些成长的磨难与欢乐,对丛林法则的敬畏与思考、对身份认同的挣扎与困惑……留下了更悠长的回味。

 

[延伸推荐]

《The Jungle Book》系列有过非常非常多电影和动画改编版本:

*目前院线正在上映由迪斯尼出品的2016版本“The Jungle Book”,《钢铁侠》系列电影的乔恩·费儒担任导演,中文译名为“奇幻森林”,马上就可以去看!

*明年将上映由华纳兄弟投拍的新版“Jungle Book: Origins”,由《魔戒》中的“咕噜姆”安迪·瑟金斯担任导演,卷福、贝尔、凯特女王等一大票明星出演的另一版本,中文译名为“丛林之书:起源”,着实令人期待!

Hatchet|手斧男孩

假如有一天,你突然被抛弃到杳无人烟的原始大森林里,没有食物,没有火,狂风暴雨,野兽出没,仅凭一把手斧,你还能独自生存下来吗?13岁的Brian能。虽然他也曾哭过,绝望过,害怕过,在梦里喊过妈妈,但没用,没人能伸出援手,他只能依靠自己的力量自救。“我就是我所拥有的一切。我必须行动起来!”

 

《Hatchet》开创了青少年荒野求生小说的先河,其内容之精彩逼真,甚至令美国《国家地理杂志》误以为这是真实事件,欲对Brian进行采访报道,更重要的是,无数孩子从中学会了如何与孤独和恐惧共处,独立直面困境,勇敢迎接挑战!

 

本书荣获1987年纽伯瑞大奖,全系列有5本,中文译本已出全。
