Rewards and Fairies

Rudyard Kipling

Book Overview: 

Joseph Rudyard Kipling was an English author and poet, born in India, and best known today for his children’s books. Rewards and Fairies is about Dan and Una who met Puck last summer, in Puck of Pook’s Hill. This summer, they meet him again – and several individuals from different periods in history, who, while generally not famous themselves, tell their tales of meeting Queen Elizabeth, Francis Drake, George Washington, and other well-known historical figures. Sadly, Dan and Una forget these encounters as soon as they are over, but the reader can enjoy them for years to come!

Mr. Springett watched like an old raven.

‘All art is one, man—one!’ said Hal between whacks; ‘and to wait on another man to finish out——’

‘To finish out your work ain’t no sense,’ Mr. Springett cut in. ‘That’s what I’m always saying to the boy here.’ He nodded towards Dan. ‘That’s what I said when I put the new wheel into Brewster’s Mill in Eighteen hundred Seventy-two. I reckoned I was millwright enough for the job ’thout bringin’ a man from Lunnon. An’ besides, dividin&r. . . Read More
