This book, intended I guess for children, is really a kind of historical novel about a place in the south of England, hung on the idea of an ancient 'fairy' that introduces the story windows.
The only thing that modern readers may well stumble over is a curious story about the influence of Jews in the reign of King John. It reflects the ideas of some people in Kipling's time that the Jews somehow controlled the power of the nations through gold. An idea that has lead to some terrible persecution. It is interesting to hear what he says but maybe not an idea you want to impart to your children.
For a child who is really interested in the written word, this book is a must.
It must be the most painless way ever to learn history and enjoy tales told as only a master can tell them.
Buy the book - in fact, buy two copies, one for the ten-year-old & one for yourself!
