Love this nice retell of the famous tale. It is a bit long so plan more time beforehand. Words are kind of "big" but very vivid. Parent who reads the book to young children needs to put some dramatic acting in there to catch their attention. My kids (5 and 6) paid close attention all the way through and agreed it's a great story! Nicely written and illustrated!

Lovely story and picture book.

The language reflects the age of this tale and that's it's greatest drawback. Even though it's been reworked from Chaucer's original text in Olde English it's still very formal and unappealing. I do love the illustations - very 40's/50's style of drawing.
