Two children, Dan and Una, acting out their version of A Midsummer Night's Dream, miraculously conjure up Puck himself. Small and as old as time itself, he brings back the past for them to witness. He re-creates a Roman centurion, a Renaissance craftsman and the villages of time gone by.About the Author:
Nobel Laureate Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) is best remembered for children's tales such as The Jungle Book as well as his poetry and stories about British soldiers in India, which include "Gunga Din" and The Man Who Would Be King. Kipling was enormously popular at the turn of the 20th century but his reputation declined with the change in attitude toward British imperialism. In recent years Kipling's works have found new acclaim as a vibrant source of literary and cultural history.
