More About the Author

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in Bombay in December 1865. He returned to India from England shortly before his seventeenth birthday, to work as a journalist first on the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, then on the Pioneer at Allahabad. The poems and stories he wrote over the next seven years laid the foundation of his literary reputation, and soon after his return to London in 1889 he found himself world-famous. Throughout his life his works enjoyed great acclaim and popularity, but he came to seem increasingly controversial because of his political opinions, and it has been difficult to reach literary judgements unclouded by partisan feeling.

I loved this as a child and when thinking of a book to get my granddson who really loves C S Lewis I thought of this. It was the right decision because he loves this book too and it has opened up the world of Rudyard Kipling and a new source of stories to him.

I thought I'd read the whole Kipling Canon but somehow this one escaped me til now. A delightful follow up to Puck of Pook' s Hill, a mixture of old friends and new, interspersed with Kipling' s wonderfully unfashionable poetry.

Format: Paperback
Rudyard Kipling's 'Puck of Pooks Hill' and 'Rewards and Fairies' aren't quite what they seem. The stories are a mixed bunch and head in more than a few quite different directions.

Revisiting the stories now in my seventh decade, the content bears little resemblance to my memories of them when, with my Mother's patient encouragement, I waded into them when I was seven. And what I certainly didn't remember then was Kipling's quote now on the back cover of the 1995 edition of 'Rewards and Fairies' by Wordsworth Classics: 'The tales had to be read by children, before people realised they were meant for grown-ups'.

Some editions are better than others. My favourites are those illustrated by HR Millar. His pictures are a great help in bringing the characters to life and fixing the periods in which the stories take place. These very clearly tell the reader that the 'fairies' bear no resemblance whatsoever to those with wands and wings.

Lovely edition of a classic book about olde England (close to where I grew up) and ancient magic - a collection of historical short stories told by the character Puck himself. I gave this copy to a friend's daughter aged 12 across the pond along with the first book in the series 'Puck of Pooks Hill' and she has loved both, as did my two daughters. Fantasy and magic do not begin and end with Harry Potter!
