    1. This is a pretty good short story by Rudyard Kipling about a mongoose named Rikki-Tikki-Tavi who saves his new family from two evil King Cobras. I saw the animated film of this a while back and it was a pretty good adaptation of the short story. Definitely check this short story out here at this link and enjoy! This is one of the breakfast club buddy reads at the Reading for Pleasure book club on . csu/~mongoose/rttml


    2. A MongooseRikki-Tikki-Tavi Quiz: /quizzes/resRikki-Tikki-Taviis one of the stories in Kipling's classic, The Jungle Book, now in the public domain and free, via Project Gutenberg. It's also available in several audiobook renditions.The plot may be too scary or sad for some children, but yet I am heartened to see kids reading a few stories that are not sugar-coated.This story is so vivid. The mongoose almost pops from the pages. Excellent characterization of this fierce critter. Kipling develops [...]


    3. “The motto of all the mongoose family is, "Run and find out," and Rikki-tikki was a true mongoose.”Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is Kipling's classic and it's originally part of The Jungle Book. This heart-warming story is about an expat family living in India and the a courageous mongoose called Rikki who guards the family from two king cobras in the garden. The plot, although simplistic, is gripping, bloody and at times frighting (for children) and yet it's exhilarating to watch the little mongoose eng [...]



    4. Are you serious, this is the book that made me a book nerd. The cobra's were so scary to me when my mother would read this book to me. Oh and the movie, even scarier with those glowing cobra emblems on their heads. Poor ricki, so brave.


    5. This is my rant/experience with the book. If you're looking for a summary, it's in the description.I found this story scrolling down my Scribd app. Two things caught my attention: the title and the name Kipling. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is the stupid nickname Anne, in George Bernard Shaw's Man and Superman, gives to her meek pursuer, Octavius. Anne doesn't want him. She wants challenge: Tanner, the superman, or, in our friend Nietzsche's words, the Übermensch!Anyway, at first, I've found zero relevance [...]


    6. Now, I have actually gotten into the story of “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” when I was little through Chuck Jones’ classic cartoon and I must say that I still enjoyed that cartoon to this very day. So, when I finally picked up this book of “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi,” which this version has illustrations by none other than Jerry Pinkney, I was absolutely blown away by how faithful this story was to the original tale and to the Chuck Jones cartoon!The story starts off with a small mongoose named Rikki-Tikk [...]


    7. So Kipling was an imperialist. Who cares? This is one of the greatest short stories ever written. I know, I know. Everyone raves about Mowgli. Forget him - Rikki-Tikki-Tavi all the way. Why Disney didn't make this one into a movie, I don't know. I can still remember the first time I read this.Kipling's tale is about young mongoose who must protect his family. Think cute and cuddly, but with sharp teeth. A perfectly thrilling tale.


    8. Well, I can't say how much I actually "enjoyed" this story but it was well told. This is the story of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a brave mongoose who protects an English family in India by waging war with the cobras in the garden. The animals in the story are vibrant characters and I like that a few divergent points of view are raised (such as, if the mongoose eats cobra eggs, why is it not fair for the cobras to eat bird eggs; if a mother bird wants to protect her babies, why shouldn't a mother cobra tr [...]


    9. This my book review for the short story Rikki-Tikki-Tavi By Rudyard Kipling.First off, There are a number of important Literary devices in this short story.The book was okay wasn't really all for me maybe for others could have been better in all some muskrat got washed up saved by a family and kills the snakes in the family's garden.In the short story of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi if this was a series of books i maybe would read if the author was different and the story was maybe a adventure book or they [...]


    10. What i think of Rikki tikki tavi,I thought it was a ok book it showed me that how strong mongoose are.Also it showed me how mongoose can protect anybody but Rikki tikki protected his family and his garden.I would have never thought that mongoose would have been scared of snakes! it is interesting that mongoose can beat snakes when they fight.


    11. "This is the story of the great war that Rikki-tikki-tavi fought single-handed, through the bathrooms of the big bungalow in Segowlee cantonment.Darzee, the Tailorbird, helped himand Chuchundra, the musk-rat, who never comes out into the middle of the floor, but always creeps round by the wall, gave him advicebut Rikki-tikki did the real fighting."This classic harks back to my recent India reading challenge--the one that started me on my now infamous Around the World challenge. But mongooses are [...]


    12. This is my book review for the short story Rikki Tikki Tavi by Rudyard Kipling. In this short story, lots of the dialogue you will find is personification. For example, the characters who are animals and can not think like normal humans, use dialogue that we are using in our everyday life. Nag and Nagaina are kind of like the garden bullies. They are 2 vey strong and powerful cobras. Nagaina and Rikki Tikki get into a fight and Nagaina drags him into her snake hole underground.


    13. I just thought it was boring. The climax was o.k. The words weren't strong. The story has a few strength. Not a lot. I mostly found weakness. I wouldn't continue this if it was a series. The story wasn't really interesting to me because it was too plain. I already got TIRED of it at the 1ST PAGE. Plus, it was confusing. What mostly confused me was the names. I kept getting confused on who the main enemy was. Nothing really made it interesting. I think the conflict was boring. It's just a fight b [...]


    14. The story by Rudyard Kipling is an average book.Personification is in this book because they use the animals like Rikki Tikki Tavi as a mongoose talking and like Nag the king cobra talking back to him. Rikki Tikki had an internal conflict of be scared of killing Nag. While the external conflict was protecting the garden from the cobras. The climax of this story was when Rikki Tikki finally killed the monstrous Nag. The antagonist are Nag, Nagiana, and Karait. The protagonist are of course Rikki [...]


    15. 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 in exchan [...]



    16. This story takes all of maybe 20 minutes to read, so the review really isn't going to say a lot. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is about a mongoose who is taken in by a small family in India, and the consequential conflict between the cobras in the garden and himself. This story is obviously meant for young children, perhaps to be read by a parent to a young child. My rating reflects the opinion of a far younger me. The story is quirky, yet serious. It introduces new words into a child's language in a subtle [...]


    17. Another beloved story of my childhood that stands up to the test of time. I still love Rikki Tikki Tavi after all this time. Having now reread it as an adult, I'm not sure how I wasn't terrified reading it when I was young. Those snakes are scary! Oh, and now I want a pet mongoose!


    18. this is my review on Rikki Tikki Tavi by rudyyard kippling.i think the book was very good and it had many different details like personification the animals could talk like real people but they still had animal like charecteristics like the cobra swayed to and fro to strike they realy do that bbut the bird can not resaky taklk obiviously the author creates a reaky gooood versionn of suspense and kit was an intser esting topic a cobra and a mongoose.


    19. This my book review for the short story Rikki-Tikki-Tavi by Rudyard Kipling. The book was a good book but i wish it continued on it was very ineresting and fun to read> Rikki Tikki is the hero of the garden and saved his family. He killed the villians and he was always the target of them but he fought them to become the bst he could be.


    20. i think the story was alright and it was very easy to keep up with. The personification was great. It is more than one hundred years old and it is still loved by many children today! I think that this is a book that anybody and everybody should read! I believe that it is one of the oldest and most entertaining children's books. It was just a great book!


    21. some of the literary elements were personification,internal conflict,and external conflict. i was suprised that they let rikki live i would of killed him and roasted it for dinner with barbecue sauce soda and a roll yummmmm anyways i thought the book was interesting and very energetic it was like a legendary hero comic but it was cheezy.


    22. I've read this book before of courset time was way back in the 70's! (Old)Just putting it in my Kid folder in order to remind me to read it to my daughter. Can't wait to read the parts of the ssssssssssssnake.



    23. This was a short and quick read. I enjoyed it very much. Almost makes me want a mongoose for a pet.


    24. i thought the book was okay, it wouldn't really be something i would like to read. i thought the book was kind of boring.



    25. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (adapted from The Jungle Book) is a mongoose that protects a family in India from two King Cobras.Rikki-Tikki came to live with the family after a flood. He would hang out in the family garden as his new hunting ground making friends with others. It all started one day when Nag (the male King Cobra) ate a baby bird that fell out of the nest. From then on it was payback between Rikki-Tikki, the family and Nag and his wife Nagaina.Rikki-Tikki ended up being a family treasure by sa [...]


    26. There are two schools of thought regarding illustrated adaptations of literary classics. One school holds that stories that are simplified for early listeners can be ruined in the process, because the listener's first experience doesn't contain the beauty and depth of the original. The second school holds that well-written adaptations can serve as stepping-stones to original works, making them more accessible. I am still between the two camps, but in making decisions about specific classic title [...]
