The Lovereading4Kids comment

A beautiful paperback edition of Rudyard Kipling's magical collection of stories and poems. Plucking figures from history to weave his magical stories, Puck takes the children from the Norman conquest to the signing of the Magna Carta. Set in the surroundings of his Sussex home, Bateman's, Rudyard Kipling's sparkling storytelling perfectly captures the myth and mystery of the English countryside. This delightful collection is a classic to treasure.

About the Author

Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay in 1865. He was educated in England but returned to India as an adult and worked as a journalist. There, he produced stories, sketches and poems that made him a literary celebrity when he returned to England in 1888. After their marriage, Kipling and his wife moved to Vermont, where he wrote The Jungle Book. Published in 1894, it became a children's classic all over the world. Tales of every kind, including historical and science fiction, continued to flow from his pen, including Kim (1901) and the Just So Stories (1902). From 1902 Kipling made his home in Sussex, but continued to travel widely and caught his first glimpse of warfare in South Africa, where he reported in the Boer War. Kipling was the recipient of many honorary degrees and other awards. He was the first writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize, in 1907, and in 1926 he received the Gold Medal of the royal Society of Literature. Kipling died in 1936.
