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.

Rudyard Kipling(1865-1936), recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907, was an English novelist, short-story writer, and poet. His sweeping tales of adventure, including Kim, Captains Courageous, and The jungle Book, won him wide popularity during his lifetime and have been beloved by generations.

Editorial Reviews

“Children who are not familiar with the story will be captivated; those who have had the story read to them before will find new things to shiver over. A beautiful edition for reading aloud.” (ALA Booklist)
