So begins one of the earliest masterpieces of English literature, a collection of stories as much prized for the portraits of its storytellers as for the stories they tell - portraits that reveal much of the rich social fabric of the 14th century England. Now three of the most popular tales - along with the charming General Prologue - have been selected for this edition: The Knight's Tale, The Miller's Prologue and Tale and The Wife of Bath's Prologue and Tale. Paperback, 135 pages.
I did not rate this book a 5 because this particular book has "selections" from Canterbury Tales. My older son thought he would be bored to tears when this was assigned in our home school. Instead he found himself laughing out loud and wanting more. What more could a mother ask of a book?
