Riki Tiki Tavi Jul 4, 2008
I was happy to find this book out there. I have fond memories of reading it many years ago in school. I still think it is a great story.
Good story Jan 13, 2008
I bought this book for my son because I loved the movie as a kid. I guess this is the movie (or condensed) version of the story, because it lacks some development and detail. My 6 year old still enjoyed it, though. I need to find the original book and/or the movie itself instead.
