    Story
    "A GREST CHILDHOOD MEMORY."

    Wonderfully narrated by Curtis Sisco and a great childhood classic by Kipling. Entertaining for both young and old. Just an adorable short story that I enjoyed listening to.

    "SpecRikkiTikkiTacular!!!"

    Very true to the animated movie, albeit lacking the charms of Orson Welles. Rudyard Kipling does a commendable job adapting this classic children's film to a literary form! This presentation is ideal for those who love India, those who love exterminating snakes, and those who love to be a bit misogynistic toward tailorbirds!! An A+ on all accounts!!!

    "Excellent snippet of the original classic"

    This review is for the Audio version specifically. Curtis Sisco did an excellent job acting out the story. It is a very engaging short story of the original classic. It is short enough that young listeners will enjoy and be able to complete in one sitting.

    Story
    "Sorry -- I did not like this version"

    I have a tendency to hold great respect for classics. I was actually disappointed in this audible book. I think this is a case where the tv / animated short on this was better than the book. I did not like the narrator.
