Any additional comments?
Of the several versions of Puck of Pook's Hill available I opted for the one narrated by Peter Kenny on the strength of his sterling performances reading Iain M Banks. The choice was amply rewarded by well loved stories brought to vibrant life. He has a deft touch with characters, each one easily identifiable and portrayed without recourse to overly laboured accents or affectations. Puck himself is beautifully presented by the narrator and the stories knit the hills and spirits of old England into a constant, overarching presence. The stories have lost none of their magic over time and although a children's book Kipling's prose is still engaging when read/heard as an adult. It was also pleasing to find that all the poems and songs are also included as, sadly, they have been removed from the audio versions of some other of Kipling's children's books.
Please Audible, can we also have Rewards And Fairies to complete the set.

I've been revisiting a childhood favourite, and it's just as good as I remember. Peter Kenny has a warm and rich voice that brings a lot of energy and flavour to the reading. Would give it six stars if I could.
