No, not a Jungle Book. But Tippi's family lived in the wilds of Namibia for 10 years before moving on to Madagascar, then France, and got along especially well with the wild animals and the tribesmen.

If she really grew up in that environment i.e. The Wild Thornberries (sp), she'd be fertilizer by now.

BarkingUnicorn: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: BarkingUnicorn: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: Gonna show this to my 5-year-old niece who's afraid of ants. ANTS!

Show her this classic short story instead.

Leningen versus the Ants

One of my favorites. I have a copy of it in an Esquire short story book from the 1930s. How that hasn't been made into a movie, I don't know. Thanks for reminding me of it. I'm gonna reread it now.

I have a vague childhood memory of such a movie; title won't come to mind.


"The Naked Jungle" starring Charleton Heston, 1957. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leiningen_Versus_the_Ants

Good call!

Oh snap. You ruined it for me. I thought it was a vagabond runaway white girl who found herself in Africa had to make it on her own in the jungle. And then photographers showed up at just the right moment.

Seriously, "staged" or not, you can't just climb up an elephant's forehead and ride on its back unless you have a pretty good rapport with the elephant. Pretty remarkable no matter how you try to explain away its remarkableness.

Just like most people wouldn't know what's safe to mess with in your computer and what's not, I don't understand how a little girl can pal around with a leopard or a cheetah and not get clawed in the eye and eaten.
