Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shay Nelson | 2/9/2014

    " Rikki Tikki Tavi is a brave mongoose that got washed from his house in a flood. Rikki Tikki Tavi is a good story because it is about a brave mongoose that saves a family from two cobras. I think this book deserves 5 stars. Rikki meets darzee a local bird that is quiet shy and likes to sing. Rikki Tikki takes some dangerous chances in this book but i can't tell you you have to read the book for yourself "

    " I recently read this to my two girls, ages 9 and 11. They were riveted the whole time! This book is a quick but intense read. We were rooting for Rikki Tikki the whole time! This book made me want to adopt a mongoose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 1/30/2014

    " One of my favorite Kipling tales. It's more adventurous and not as dry as some of the other Jungle Book stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/28/2014

    " I remember reading this story when I was in elementray school and I loved it. It is about a mongoose, adopted by and English family living in India, and how he repays their kindness by protecting them from the two King Cobras, Nag & Nagaina. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 1/23/2014

    " I remember reading and loving this book, so many times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelynn | 1/16/2014

    " I remember watching the Disney version of this story when I was younger, so when I had to read this in a compilation of literature for school, I found old memories rushing to greet me. Right down to the dialogue and the narration by Rikki, I remembered everything. And it wasn't a bad thing, either. I loved the movie as a child, and loved the written story as a 16-year-old. The writing was wonderful; the story plot may be simple, but the overall message (at least for me) - protect what/who you love - was very sweet. Rikki protected the family who rescued him, and in turn found a forever home. "

    " decent retelling of the Kipling "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/5/2014

    " I picked this book up largely because I have fond memories of the story from my childhood. Pleased to report that the 6-year-old really liked it and has made me read it a couple of times in spite of the fact that it is a long bedtime story. Girls might like it, I did, but I am always on the hunt for good books for boys and this definitely makes the list. "

    " Rudyard Kipling paints a wonderful picture and captivates many children's short attention spans with the exotic setting of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. A classic good vs. bad story sure to enthuse young readers. "
