42:120 Puck of Pook's Hill by Rudyard Kipling

Dan and Una are out exploring the land as they usually do once they are dismissed from their lessons when they come across a man who is definitely not a man. In fact, it turns out to be "the oldest living thing in England" and refers to himself as Puck and alludes to being the very same one told about in Midsummer Night's Dream.  Now when they go out, they frequently run into Puck and one of his friends from centuries ago and get to hear the most amazing stories from England's past. Fantastical and whimsical, the stories are lovely and were great fun to read together with my 10yr old.
