Rewards and Fairies is a historical fantasy book by Rudyard Kipling published in 1910. The title comes from the poem ”Farewell, Rewards and Fairies” by Richard Corbet. The poem is referred to by the children in the first story of the preceding book Puck of Pook’s Hill. Rewards and Fairies is set one year later chronologically although published four years afterwards. The book consists of a series of short stories set in historical times with a linking contemporary narrative. Dan and Una are two children, living in the Weald of Sussex in the area of Kipling’s own home Bateman’s. They have encountered Puck and he magically conjures up real and fictional individuals from Sussex’s past to tell the children some aspect of its history and prehistory, though the episodes are not always historically accurate. Another recurring character is Old Hobden who represents the continuity of the inhabitants of the land. His ancestors sometimes appear in the stories and seem very much like him. Some stories contain elements of the supernatural as well as history. Each story is preceded and followed by a poem, including If—, often described as Britain’s favourite poem. Other well known poems included in the book are Cold Iron and The Way through the Woods.

About the Author:

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in India, and spent the first six years of his life there, acquiring Hindustani as a second language and living in a bungalow like that in The Jungle Book. He was then sent to a boarding house in England with his sister Alice, where he had a miserable time until he was sent to The United Services College at Westward Ho! in Devon, the model for Stalky & Co. He left school at sixteen to return to India and work on The Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, and his familiarity with all classes of society provided him with material for Barrack Room Ballads and Plain Tales from the Hills. In 1889 he returned to England and in 1891 published his novel The Light That Failed, and married Caroline (Carrie) Balestier the following year. They returned to her home Brattleboro, Vermont, where Kipling wrote the two Jungle Books and Captains Courageous. In 1896 the family returned to England, where Kipling continued to write prolifically, and was the first Englishman to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. His later years were darkened by the death of his son John at the Battle of Loos in 1915. Kipling's long association with Macmillan began in 1891, with the publication of Life's Handicap and continued with most of Kipling's prose and children's works, available in multiple editions long after his death in 1936.
