Children's Book Week

A viral topic is posting about a fondly remembered children' book for Children's Book Week. This one is just too fun to pass.

One of my favorites as a child is Puck of Pook's Hill by Kipling. I always preferred history, even feigned, to make-believe. These short stories picked subjects hard to resist, Vikings, Romans, Britons for example. I may have go back and reread them.

Wow, that's one of those books I always thought no one else had ever read (obviously not true, but it feels that way sometimes). Did you read Rewards and Fairies, too?

Can't remember Rewards and Faries. I think I read it but only once. PoPH I read several times. Really have to read both of them again.
