Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales – Selected as one of the Best Books of 2007 by US School Library Journal

“Marcia Williams’ breathes new life into the classic stories, capturing the tone of the original tales but rendering them vivid and fresh. Her inimitable narrative technique combining prose, detailed illustration and humorous dialogue makes the tales accessible to readers of all ages and abilities. Her innovative mix of comic style frames, decorative technique and gorgeous colour palette makes each double page work as a unity. The snippets of Chaucerian language that pepper the pages are bound to delight young readers, who will enjoy imitating this style. A perfect introduction to Chaucer and a classroom essential.”
