Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days


Come one, come all for a ride upon Dame Fortune’s wheel! Join many a medieval character as some ride high on good luck, while others fall foul of greed, jealousy, and anger. For in this book, storyteller Dave Tonge has adapted traditional tales from sources like Chaucer and Bocaccio of proud princes, discontented doctors, mean merchants, covetous cooks, heroic hounds, and many more besides. Mixing them with morsels of history, Medieval Folk Tales for Children will give young readers a fair and fine flavor of the ups and downs of life from 500 to 1,000 years ago.
