Rikki-Tikki_Tavi
8 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

A few years ago... I read this story for an English class where they made us over analyze it, make observations, and write poems about the outcome of this story. I didn't so much understand why we needed to do so with this story, as it is for young children. None the less, any small child would adore the cute Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, and admire his courage. However, if your children have a huge fear of snakes, especially cobras, then it's best to keep your distance for a while. This was a cute story, that would appeal to a G-Rated audience. r i k k i t i k k i t a v i r i k k i t i k k i t a v i r i k k i t i k k i t a v i.
