Storyboard Text

  • Emma Brincefield and Madeline Gunter
  • A mongoose called Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is very brave and strong. He makes friends in a garden and becomes enemies with two snakes. The snakes are mean so he kills them to protect his friends and family.  
  • Courage
  • You should have courage to protect loved ones, like friends and family.
  • The Garden
  • 'When he revived, he was lying in the hot sun in the middle of a garden path, very draggled indeed, and a small boy was saying, "Here's a dead mongoose. Let's have a funeral."'

  • In line 110, Rikki-Tikki says, "...Do you think it is right for you to eat fledgelings out of a nest?" Rikki is standing up with the element of courage to Nag , so Nag could possible stop eating the fledgelings.

  • By showing how Rikki-Tikki constantly fights Nag and Nagina, it shows how Rikki is trying very hard to protect himself and his family. 
  • 'Then he jumped. The head was lying a little clear of the water jar, under the curve of it; and, as his teeth met...'
