Item description for Rikki-Tikki-Tavi: And Other Stories (Junior Classics) by Rudyard Kipling & Madhav Sharma...

"Rikk-tikk-tikki-tikki-tchk!"

A classic story from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, adapted and illustrated by award-winning artist Jerry Pinkney, this is the tale of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a fearless young mongoose.

Soon after a flood washes Rikki into the garden of an English family, he comes face-to-face with Nag and Nagaina, two giant cobras. The snakes are willing to attack Rikki, and even the human family who lives there, to claim the garden and house for themselves. But they do not count on the heart and pride of the brave little mongoose.

More About Rudyard Kipling & Madhav Sharma


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India to British parents on December 30, 1865. In 1871, Rudyard and his sister, Trix, aged three, were left to be cared for by a couple in Southsea, England. Five years passed before he saw his parents again. His sense of desertion and despair were later expressed in his story -Baa Baa, Black Sheep- (1888), in his novel The Light that failed (1890), and his autobiography, Something of Myself (1937). As late as 1935 Kipling still spoke bitterly of the -House of Desolation- at Southsea: -I should like to burn it down and plough the place with salt.-At twelve he entered a minor public school, the United Services College at Westward Ho, North Devon. In Stalky and CO. (1899) the myopic Beetle is a self-caricature, and the days at Westward Ho are recalled with mixed feelings. At sixteen, eccentric and literary, Kipling sailed to India to become a journalist. His Indian experiences led to seven volumes of stories, including Soldiers Three (1888) and Wee Willie Winkie (1888).At twenty-four he returned to England and quickly tuned into a literary celebrity. In London he became close friends with an American, (Charles) Wolcott Balestier, with whom he collaborated on what critics called a -dime store novel.- Wolcott died suddenly in 1891, and a few weeks later Kipling married Wolcott's sister, Caroline. The newlyweds settled in Brattleboro, Vermont, where Kipling wrote The Jungle Book (1895), and most of Captains Courageous (1897). By this time Kipling's popularity and financial success were enormous.In 1899 the Kipling's settled in Sussex, England, where he wrote some of his best books: Kim (1901), Just So Stories (1902), and Puck of Pooks Hill (1906). In 1907 he received the Nobel Prize for literature. By the time he died, on January 18 1936, critical opinion was deeply divided about his writings, but his books continued to be read by thousands, and such unforgettable poems and stories as -Gunga Din, - -If, - -The Man Who Would Be King, - and -Rikki-Tikki-Tavi- have lived on in the consciousness of succeeding generations.Peter Washington is the editor of several Everyman's Library Pocket Poet anthologies, including Love Poems, Friendship Poems, and Poems of Mourning.

Rudyard Kipling lived in Bombay Bombay. Rudyard Kipling was born in 1865 and died in 1936.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rikki-Tikki-Tavi: And Other Stories (Junior Classics)?

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.
 
Rikki Tikki Tavi  Jan 19, 2007
I liked Rikki Tikki Tavi it was a really good book. There were lots of exciting and unexpected things happening. I liked the characters - my favourite was Rikki Tikki. It was interesting to learn about the mongoose.
 
Rikki-Tikki-Tavi  Aug 31, 2006
This is the story of the great war that Rikki-tikki-tavi fought single-handed, through the bath-rooms of the big bungalow in Segowlee cantonment...

Rikki tikki tavi is about a mongoose who gets washed away from his home. a little boy finds and keeps him. Rikki must battle Nag and Nagina [did I spell that wrong?]two cobras that want to kill the family to safely hatch their eggs

so peoples enjoy the book and watch the movie too!
 
A young reader's must have  Feb 28, 2006
