Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale comes alive in this funny, colorful adaptation by prize-winning playwright Y York. This sweet story of friendship and cooperation takes place in an exotic Indian garden and tells the charming tale of an unusual friendship between an innocent baby mongoose (the hero, Rikki), a vain and bossy bird, and a dear but befuddled muskrat. Through the shared danger of facing Nag, the sneaky cobra, these unlikely comrades find that they are smarter, braver and more resourceful together, and that a strong home makes room for everyone.
If your family enjoyed A Year with Frog and Toad and likes being transported to mysterious lands, The Garden of Rikki Tikki Tavi will appeal to you.
