A Classic for all time.
This is a good translation.
I was surprised how vulgar the stories could be and how much church bashing there was! I guess I thought that was a modern past time.

A true classic! I loved the stories, and it's amazing that they have not lost their power after 650-odd years. This version was apparently written for children, so it is quite an easy, quick read. This is not the Middle English/Old English version they made us read in high school; it's a lot more readable and fun!

Outstanding 1934 edition, with Rockwell Kent illustrations. Collector's item.
