Fantastic! Has a little bit of everything fun. Anything by Kipling is bound for my all-time favorites pile. This series is a collection of stories lightly joined together by a common theme and a common place. In Puck of Pook's Hill, the theme is about what it means to be British: it shows the persistently noble and free character of the British people as it evolved from Roman times on. The main characters are children of Kipling's era, and each story they hear is narrated by someone who is intimately connected with the history of their family's land. It's really a kind of love-letter to a specific place: as I understand it, the county where Kipling himself settled.
