Über den Autor

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) was born in Bombay and educated in England. He returned to India to begin a career in journalism and would go on to become one of the most popular and acclaimed writers of his day. Among his best-loved works is The Jungle Book, a collection of stories about a boy raised by wolves in the Indian jungle, which was adapted into the classic Disney film of the same name. In 1907, Kipling became the first English-language writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.

    B. J. Harrison is a word wizard! He truly brought to life this children's classic tale. It was very much appreciated.

    I know I read this story as a child, but it’s been a long time. Then, when we were at the bookstore this weekend, my son found this book and HAD to have it. It is a nicely illustrated version of the story – Rikki is VERY cute. And we’ve decided that if we ever live in India, we are definitely getting a pet mongoose. It does make me a bit sad to see the cobras villified this way (because we like snakes at least as much as we like mongooses – mongeese? – in general, but Nag and Nagaina are just mean). We read this at bedtime last night, and I have a feeling it will become one of the bedtime favourites. And YAY! I love stuff that I can read using different voices. Lots of fun.LJ Discussion

    I must have read, or listened to, Rikki Tikki Tavi at some point in my life; I wonder if I had an abridged record (yes, I mean vinyl) when I was small. I wonder if I still have it. I knew the basics, but there was a lot more to it than I recalled (if I had a record when I was small, it was probably bowldlerized). I have to give Kipling credit – Rikki Tikki was cocky and self-important – but I liked him. And the narration by Emma Lysy was a delight. I received this via Audiobookblast.com in exchange for a review. With thanks!

    A young mongoose, named Rikki-tikki-tavi makes a new home with a human family. He earns the family's trust and appreciation by protecting them and saving them from the dangerous snakes on their land.The book would be beneficial in a discussion about pets, how they are treated, and how pet owners feel about their various pets.

    Jerry Pinkney's illustrated version of Kipling's thrilling story of the mongoose who defends his family's household from deadly cobras captures the beauty of India while maintaining the power of Rikki Tikki's enemies. This is one of my children's favorites.

    One of my favorites from childhood. Still an outstanding short story. It is amazing how much information Kipling puts into the story.

    This book is about a mongoose that washes upon a shore of a family that owns a garden full of animals. Some of the animals including bireds and vicious snakes. Rikki Tikki is not afraid of anything or any animal. He kills some of the most vicious snakes in the garden and protects his human family throughout the entire book. When some other snakes want revenge for killing their brothers, Rikki Tikki outsmarts the snakes and kills them as well. Rikki Tikki was a hero.

    The Classic tale of a mongoose pitted against the cobras and welcomed among his human family for it. Set culturally and language wise in the late 1800s, and the ruling classes during the occupation of the British Empire, it may be a little 'dated' but it's a perfect short story of the animal underdog winning the day.

    Rikki Tikki Tavi er et desmerdyr. Skrædderfuglen Darzi og moskusrotten Kukundra slås mod brilleslangerne Nag og Nagaina. De redder drengen Teddy og hans forældre fra både den lille slange Karait og brilleslangeparret.En klassisk børnebog

    Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a mongoose, lives with a small family in India. He finds out that two cobras, Nag and his wife Nagaina, are planning to kill the two adults and their young son Teddy. The clever mongoose decides to protect them and to take on the dangerous snakes. I first got to know this story through the 1970s animated movie and I fell in love with the brave animal. The book is even better.

    I've love the story of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi since I was a little boy and this Rudyard Kipling story is complimented by beautiful artwork by Jerry Pinkney who does an excellent job of bringing to life the characters. the story follows Rikki a mongoose as he is taken in by a family and how he protects the little boy from snakes that are trying to kill him.

    My favorite of Kipling's works. Rikki is one of the cutest protagonists I have ever seen. The illustrations for this book are a phenomenal addition to a beautiful story.

    I loved this story from when I was a kid and my mom introduced me to it. I used it to help me fall asleep tonight. The only reason I gave four stars is because this is a great bedtime story, but sometimes the narrator raised his voice quite a bit toward the end which woke me back up.

    Though written more than 100 years ago it still describes the moongoose. This is delightful tale great to read to my grandchild.
