Rikki Tikki-Tavi (Westwind Media) says it is for ages 9 – 14, but we’re not sure. One 12-year-old reviewer loved it, but several younger kids squirmed and lost interest. The illustrations are appealing, the sound and animation are good, but there’s a lot of text on each page that seems too dense for 9-year-olds. Like The Fall of the House of Usher, also from Westwind, this has a discussion section providing a page-by-page analysis, far too complex for many 14-year-olds. We like the format for these discs, but it’s too sophisticated an approach for young kids and too juvenile a story for older ones.

– March 1995
