When young Una and Dan go out to do the play of Midsummer's Night Eve, they conjure up old Puck himself. Through him, people of old England come to tell their stories to the children, bringing the past to life. They tell of Normans battling Saxons (as well as each other); Romans at arms, ready for Picts or Northmen; smugglers, fairies and a Jew who helped force the signing of the Magna Carta. Kipling's smooth, flowing language issues from Crossley impeccably, with a clearly delineated command of tone and local accent. This classic introduction to English history should furnish much magic for family sharing. S.B.S. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
