#43 - Rikki Tikki Tavi

by Rudyard Kipling

I know I read this story as a child, but it’s been a long time. Then, when we were at the bookstore this weekend, my son found this book and HAD to have it. It is a nicely illustrated version of the story – Rikki is VERY cute. And we’ve decided that if we ever live in India, we are definitely getting a pet mongoose. It does make me a bit sad to see the cobras villified this way (because we like snakes at least as much as we like mongooses – mongeese? – in general, but Nag and Nagaina are just mean). We read this at bedtime last night, and I have a feeling it will become one of the bedtime favourites. And YAY! I love stuff that I can read using different voices. Lots of fun.
