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 Lovely little story 12 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Originally part of Kipling's "The Jungle Book" collection, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is a wonderful piece of classic children's literature. I would call it more flash fiction than short story, in so much that it goes at such a pace and is so easy to read that it might take ten to fifteen minutes to read. Would recommend to anyone looking for something small and entertaining to pass a few minutes.
(Also, this ebook is an accurate and error-free copy)

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story 8 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this to my nine year old daughter, and I'm not sure who enjoyed it more. There were moments where I had to stop reading to compose myself. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who loves stories told from an animal's point of view and anyone who enjoys a fast paced, gripping story and everyone else...
