Summary

Summary

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and Other Stories contains five tales ranging from the jungles of India to the frozen emptiness of the North. In all of his stories, Kipling’s extraordinary powers of description and his ability to identify with human aspiration and animal survival are vividly shown. 

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a fearless young mongoose, must battle with Nag and Nagaina, two cobras stalking the garden of his family’s home; Toomai has a unique glimpse of the elephant world; and Kotick, the white seal, searches for sanctuary while Kotuko has to find food for his starving Eskimo village.

Above all, Kipling’s love of life in all its variety shines through.
