Good recording of "Rikki Tikki Tavi"

(0 stars)

I haven't listened to the whole collection, but I wanted to say that this version of "Rikki Tikki Tavi" was my first introduction to the classic story and I liked it a lot. The American-sounding male reader, Mark Butler, puts a lot of expression into the animal characters.

(3.5 stars)

some good stories, some very good and some not so good. enjoyed the reading of the volunteers.

Mrs. Packletide's Tiger...a marvel. One of me favorite standbys. What talent...thank you, most humbly.
