Rikki Tikki Tavi

A fast moving story that my grandson thoroughly enjoyed on a long car journey. Easy to listen to.

Not my favorite

I did not care for the narration of this story. I think it would’ve made a better impression if I had read it. This is a children’s story and will probably be more appreciated by the age group it was intended. It’s a very quick listen and I am glad I was able to add it to my library.

great quick listen/read.

narrator does an amazing job. the story is short and kept my wild kids entertained for 30 minutes. the story is exciting, and the writing (of course being Kipling) is fantastic.

Wonderful narration

Our five year old son really likes this audio book. We use it to send him to bed. the narration is very well done and clear. Darzy's singing is quite funny.

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.

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.
