Summary

On Midsummer Eve in a Sussex meadow, Dan and Una act out their version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Suddenly, Puck, as old as Time itself, miraculously appears. The youngsters are swept into the past as Puck conjures up villages of long ago, filled with craftsmen, a Roman centurion, and a Norman knight. Rudyard Kipling’s magical tale brings English history dramatically to life to captivate both the young and the young at heart.

Just like my Great Uncle telling me a story

I love this book, when Kippling is talking about West Sussex. His celebration of the county shines through.

The most charming bit of English history ever

I've always adored this Kipling gem. It's fun, funny, sweet, strong and chocked full of history of a very primal sense. Not just for kids. Fabulous.

Charming magic history

Kipling displays his wide sympathies and prowess at stories of magic and folklore. He provides a secret history of England full of adventure and wonderful characters.
