This book makes this classic story available to a young readership while still capturing the atmosphere and suspense of the original story. Little did the travellers know that when they agreed to a storytelling competition on their way to Canterbury, they would be subjected to the Pardoner's crooked ways! Will the Pardoner convince the travellers to part with their money? Chaucer was the first great writer of English literature. His "Canterbury Tales" (inc. "The Pardoner's Tale") revolutionised medieval literature by telling stories about ordinary people. "The Pardoner's Tale" is one of the most popular and admired tales from Chaucer. This book is illustrated by Chris Mould. Consultant: Pat Pinsent, University of Surrey.
