David M. Harris
AudioFile, July 2017

Kenny’s varied British accents are wonderful; a few, however, as authentic as they are, may strain some American ears. But the narration shifts easily between the stories and the poems in this collection. Some listeners may take offense at the anti-Semitic undertones in a poem and story near the end, but Kenny makes clear Kipling’s ringing endorsement of (eventual) freedom for all Britons. © 2017 AudioFile

The Times (London), July 2016

…This highly idiosyncratic child’s history of England was first published in 1906. …Each chapter is topped and tailed by a song or poem. Try it on your children. Despite the demands it might seem to make, they will respond to the music of its words and the sense of magic it creates. © 2016 The Times (London)
