Loved "that Mongoose" as a child, love the book even more as an adult with more story perspective.

I purchased this one for my daughter yet read it first, she lives in a different age, with different authors, whereas I came from an age where this sort of book was read to you in excerpts (if you were really lucky) in school assembly ..a time when reading out loud to children was prominent within schooling, ...& boy did we love it, ..fed our book habits & helped those non readers along with knowledge & hopefully a desire to pick up a book now & again.
It stands the test of time, much like the jungle book! ...don't doubt it, just download it & re-live a great story well told. (a great one to follow up with for a child if you have had them reading the jungle book prior to this, coming from the same era & area it should be easy for a child to latch onto).
