imagery Ex. “One day a high summer flood washed him out of the burrow …and carried him, kicking and clucking down a roadside ditch. He found a little wisp of grass floating there, and clung to it till he lost his senses. There is a lot of detail and description that helps you picture Rikki in your head.
Figurative language “He could fluff up his tail until it looked a bottle- brush.’’ Kipling uses similes like this one all through the story. We can just imagine what Rikki looks like when he is ready to fight. tailed%20mongoose1.jpg
Word choice “She [Nagaina] had crept up behind him as he was talking, to make an end of him; and he heard her savage hiss as the stroke missed.” Kipling selects words that show how Nagaina is scary, sneaky, and evil. A C41D/Presentation.Large/Indian-grey-mongoose-attacking-a- snake.jpg
The author The story by Rudyard Kipling would be great to include because he’s popular for writing books about animals like The Jungle Book even though he lived a long time ago. He was born on December 30, 1865, in Mumbai.He won the 1907 Nobel Prize for Literature. 2.jpg
