Product Description:

This Puffin Classics edition retells Geoffrey Chaucer's original tales, but they have been adapted by Geraldine McCaughrean for younger readers. Unlike many adapted versions, this one has chapters and still retains the feel of the original stories, just with simpler language. Thirteen of the original tales are included: The Knight's Tale, The Miller's Tale, The Nun's Priest's Tale, The Reeve's Tale, The Scholar's Tale, The Wife of Bath's Tale, The Pardoner's Tale, Sir Topas, The Franklin's Tale, The Magistrate's Tale, The Canon's Yeoman's Tale, The Friar's Tale, and The Merchant's Tale. This is a great retelling of a medieval classic. 114 pgs, pb.

Category Description for Middle Ages - Canterbury Tales:

This classic by Geoffrey Chaucer begins by giving details about a group of people who are journeying to Canterbury. All these different kinds of people share stories, and these tales are captured here to show readers how different people lived and thought in medieval England. A knight tells about courtly love, a cheerful wife shares an Arthurian legend, a dirty cook is full of impolite anecdotes, and a variety of other great and diverse tales are told. ~ Rachel

My children and I love this book.
I read this book to my children last year when we were studying the medieval period. We all loved it. Some of the stories are very funny and it was a nice break from some of the more difficult books.
