*** On Sale Now! (Normal price $2.99) *** Written as a kind of Part II to Kipling's previous hit, "Puck of Pook's Hill", "Rewards and Fairies" continues where its predecessor left off. Like the first book, "Rewards" once again follows the adventures of little Dan and Una as their adventures with Puck give them new insights into England's fabulous past. Once again our unlikely heroes (and their unlikely guide) are visited by some relatively obscure but important members of England's great moments. These include everything from a lady of Queen Elizabeth I's court to a half-English half-French smuggler from the years of the French Revolution. They meet a caveman that gave his own eye for a knife and consequently ended up a god amongst his people. Kipling includes a smuggler that tells a story about his travels amongst the Seneca of North America. His tale praises President George Washington, making the man out to be just shy of a saint. Some of the characters from the previous book also reappear. Once again we meet Harry Dawe, the stonemason who was knighted by King Henry VIII for saving him thirty pounds. There is also Sir Richard Dalyngridge. And there is a lot of humor in these stories too. Puck at one point introduces the kids to an astrologer who saved a village from the plague (he had the right methods but the wrong reasons). Then there are lines in this book that could keep you awake and twisting for days. It also gives chummy nicknames to some of the world's most infamous men. Suddenly Napolean Bonaparte is being referred to as "Boney" and Sir Francis Drake is reduced to a mere, "Frankie". This audio book will definitely keep you amused for days.
