The Graveyard Book is an parallel to The Jungle Book.
Many of the Major characters have a direct parallel. For example:
- Bod : Mowgli
- Silas : Bagheera
- Miss Lupescu : Baloo
- The Owens : Mother/Father Wolf
Elizabeth Hempstock is a fairly major character, however she seems to be original with no obvious parallel.
Is there a character in one of the Mowgli stories who is an equivalent to her?
(I only know the first Jungle Book and can't see one, and know there are other stories out there which may contain other parallels).
