Overview

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is a short story in The Jungle Book (1894) by Rudyard Kipling about the adventures of a valiant young mongoose.
An English family who has moved to a bungalow in the jungles of Segowlee cantonment in Bihar State, India - discovers a young mongoose half drowned from a storm. They revive it and decide to keep it as a pet. The young mongoose, named Rikki Tikki by its new owner, soon finds himself confronted by two dangerous, murderous cobras, Nag (the word is Hindi for "cobra") and his even more dangerous wife Nagaina, who had the run of the garden while the house was unoccupied. After that first encounter with the cobras, Rikki's first true battle is with Karait, a dust brown snakeling who threatens the young boy Teddy. Although the snake, because of its deadly venom and small size, is an even more dangerous foe than a cobra, the mongoose kills him. The grateful family pet and praise "our mongoose".

This amazing book includes twenty gorgeously illustrated pages.

    Great for my boys

    My pre-school boys have developed an interest in snakes, reptiles, lizards (animals in general are interesting). I thought they would enjoy this story. They were so excited when they saw the book and wanted to read it immediately. It has become a favorite to read before bed. After reading the book, playing Rikki-Tikki is also a new fun pretend game. The book has led to discussions about what snakes eat and about venomous/non-venomous snakes and about geography and where snakes live around the world. The story is simple enough for my younger boys to understand but not so mundanely simple that mom and dad inwardly groan when the children bring us this story to read (again!)

    rikki tikki tavi

    I think the story Rikki-Tikki-tavi is something everyone should have to read it. Its about a mongoose that gets hurt in the woods and this boy finds him hurt just laying there with no movement and the boy comes and gets the mongoose and nurse it back to health and then two snacks come and try to kill the three people in the house so they can lay there eggs there. Description and summary of main points The mongoose gets hurt and a family takes him in. What happens next ? Evaluation I am going to evaluate the bird and Riki-Tiki. The bird was cool because he warned Rikki-Tikki, the mongoose, and they fought about it. And the family was safe from harm Conclusion I think is a good book because it is full of action Your final review It is great pick one up today?

    childhood favorite

    I remember reading this book as a child, and I am buying it now for my children. I used to read this book constantly, until it fell apart. It is a great story, and it has a lot of lessons for impressionable little ones.
