    I bought this book after a visit to "The Canterbury Tales" museum in Canterbury a few weeks ago. In the museum 5 of the Tales were depicted in a very lively way. I wanted to read the stories for myself, but realized that the way Chaucer original wrote them probably wouldn't work for me. This retelling was a good way to learn more about the stories in a fun way.The stories are a bit like fairy tales or folklore. I like them!
