For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack."

"I LOVE your version of The Jungle Book. I have looked at 5 different versions and yours is the best! I love the fact that there is the focus on Community and that there is such flexibility as far as roles. We have done the Disney Jungle Book but that doesn't have the heart that yours has."
