The story is not the full story by Rudyard Kipling, rather it is abridged, and loses some of its charm for that.

Two boys' review: A light introduction to Kipling 26 July 2008
By Jared Castle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a book version of the Chuck Jones cartoon that aired on CBS in 1975. I recommend you buy the DVD and the book together, so that little kids can hear the characters' voices.

Don't let the other reviewers dissuade you from buying this book because it is an edited version of The Jungle Book. I have a five-year old and a four-year old and they enjoy this shorter version. I'll introduce them to the original book in a couple of years.

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com

This is the story of the great war that Rikki-tikki-tavi fought single-handed, through the bath-rooms of the big bungalow in Segowlee cantonment...

Rikki tikki tavi is about a mongoose who gets washed away from his home. a little boy finds and keeps him. Rikki must battle Nag and Nagina [did I spell that wrong?]two cobras that want to kill the family to safely hatch their eggs

so peoples enjoy the book and watch the movie too!

Brilliant Tale for Children and Adults 8 Nov. 2009
By Douglas Setter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a brilliant animated version of Rudyard Kipling's classic tale. A mongoose (Rikki Tikki Tavi) is rescued by a British family living in India. Their kindness is quickly rewarded when Rikki proves to be a protective pet and ruthless killer of poisonous snakes. When a couple of cobras moves in nearby, Rikki must use all of his cunning and skill to rid the area of the two deadly enemies. Orson Wells makes a great narrator in this great classic. Not recommended for very young children.

Love it! 19 Dec. 2009
By Allison Iles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My two and a half year old son sits through this entire book in rapt attention. There are some mildly scary parts (Rikki Tikki Tavi the mongoose kills one of the evil cobras, and the other snake is shot by the father of the house). We really enjoy reading this book as a family, it is one of my son's favorites.
Good story 13 Jan. 2008
By 2 boys' mama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book for my son because I loved the movie as a kid. I guess this is the movie (or condensed) version of the story, because it lacks some development and detail. My 6 year old still enjoyed it, though. I need to find the original book and/or the movie itself instead.
