Publisher's Summary

Rudyard Kipling's classic tale (first published in The Jungle Book, and considered by many to be the best of those stories) details the fearless exploits of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a young mongoose whom misadventure had fortuitously brought to live at the bungalow of an expatriate British family in India. Rikki Tikki through great presence of mind, fortitude, and simply by being a mongoose saves the family from the murderous intent of two cobras. A great tale from long ago, but still exciting today. Masterfully narrated by the quintessentially English Phillip J. Mather.

Any additional comments?

This is a classic tale from the Jungle Book, one of my childhood favourites, written by a master. The morals in it are as true today as they were way back when it was first published. It is a wonderful story and the classic English voice of Phillip J. Mather is perfect for its narration.
