Summary
Several of the popular stories are retold with handsome illustrations by Trina Schart Hyman. Beautiful edition of selected stories including: The Pardoner's Tale and The Wife of Bath's Tale. In 1386, Chaucer recorded, or created, the stories spun by 30 pilgrims traveling from London to Canterbury. Cohen and Hyman have responded to Chaucer's masterpiece with lively prose and unforgettable pictures that evoke the colorful world of 14th-century England. Full color
