      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.

      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 bermensch Anyway, at first, I ve found zero relevance between [...]

      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 Tikki Tavi being fou [...]

      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.

    9. Kathryn on said:

      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 try to p [...]

      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 [...]

      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.

    12. Gianna Nielsen on said:

      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. Hana on said:

      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 dif [...]

      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 between too ani [...]

    15. Spencer on said:

      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 Tikki [...]

      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 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 exchange for a review With [...]

    17. John Yelverton on said:

      Far less well known than The Jungle Book , but in my opinion, it is a much better story.

    18. Bethany on said:

      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 way N [...]

    21. Braden Pinney on said:

      i think the story was alright and it was very easy to keep up with The personification was great It is 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

    22. Ethan Branich on said:

      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.

    29. Shanna Gonzalez on said:

      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 accessible I am still between the two camps, but in making decisions about specific classic titles I ask [...]
