Kipling really does write well. I loved the idea of this book, the framing device of the children meeting Puck, and those sections are excellent - I love the poems that top and tail the sections. But to the main point of the book, the historical figures telling their stories - you need to know the history before you read this because he does plunge in rather. Given that this book was written presumably for children, it makes you realise that education was very different one hundred years ago. I've put the sequel, 'Rewards and Fairies' on my to-read list.
