5.0 out of 5 stars childhood favorite 3 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
my happiest memories are times spent with my grandparents. one set taught me to cook & the other fueled my love of literature by reading the likes of Twain, Blyton, Tarka the Otter to name a few, but one of my faves was the endearing tale of a boy & his mongoose. the ultimate story of good vs evil and good triumphs. I never tire of this story.

Rudyard Kipling may not be everyone's cup of tea but this delightful story should appeal to all ages - I have used it with junior children and with undergraduates to convey a sense of the British in India .

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant short story for bedtime 23 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Somehow I missed this story as a child, but I think I would have loved it. I really enjoyed reading it as an adult and although a classic now it does not feel old fashioned as some older tales can do. It's just the right length to read in one sitting, fierce, funny, scary in places, but with a happy ending (unless you're a snake!)
