Rudyard Kipling

Puck of Pook's Hill
Macmillan, 1906


Dan & Una acted "Midsummer Night's Dream" three times over on Midsummer's Eve, in the middle of a Ring - & right under Pook's Hill. That was how they met Puck, "the oldest Old Thing in England," & the last of the People of the Hills. With Puck, they were introduced to the nearly forgotten pages of old England's history & to the people who had lived near Pook's Hill & helped to make that history. This story of Dan & Una & their adventures has the feel & spirit of Old England. It is told with whimsical reality & understanding & in the years since its publication has become one of the lasting books for boys & girls the world over. -Borders
