Puck of Pook’s Hill is Kipling’s magical evocation of England’s history, a joyous celebration of all that is best in a country and its peoples.
In a sleepy meadow by a mill-stream, Dan and Una act out their version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and suddenly Puck himself appears. A small, blue-eyed, pointy-eared person, he is as old as Time itself and has seen many wonderful things which the children are eager to hear about. As he tells them stories of gods, of noble deeds and chivalrous knights, of adventures at home and on the high seas, a whole new world opens up before them. Through Puck, Dan and Una begin to develop a sense of their own heritage and a knowledge and understanding that will help them through life.
