The late Joan Bodger wrote books for adults and children, and was known internationally as one of Canada’s foremost storytellers. Here, children are treated to medieval tales which constituted the core of the storyteller’s repertoire. Readers will be introduced or reaquainted with classic characters such as Tristan, Childe Rowland, Burd Janet, and Iron John. This book is a great purchase for storytellers and lovers of medieval tales alike. mRb
