Chaucer's Canterbury Tales
Candlewick Press, 2007 - Children's stories, English. - 45 pages
Marcia Williams retells nine favorite Chaucerian tales in her witty, engaging comic-strip style.
Step back into the Middle Ages for a boisterous, bawdy storytelling session led by the one and only Chaucer. Marcia Williams uses her signature comic-strip format to animate nine Canterbury classics, including "The Clerk's Tale," "The Miller's Tale," and "The Wife of Bath's Tale." Interspersed with her lively narrative and running side-commentary are bits of dialogue from the original Medieval English text, bringing the essence of Chaucer's colorful humor to modern readers in an engaging way.
