    Story
    "One to Keep Around for the Little One"
    Would you listen to Rikki Tikki Tavi again? Why?

    Yes! The story is captivating. The narration is brisk, but valiant in its voices and efforts.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rikki. Hero.


    What does Curtis Sisco bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Flourishes with his voice. A quickened understanding of the pace of the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A Mongoose finds his Home


    Any additional comments?

    Bought it a little too early for my 2 year old, but will definitely listen again and again as he gets older. The story should get richer with each listen.

    "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.
