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 .
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...
I remember reading this book as a child and I thought it might be too old fashioned for my 6 year old Granddaughter but she loves it. In addition, it put her to sleep after 5 minutes of reading. Bonus!!
