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.

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