Beautifully written and illustrated,
This review is from: Proud Knight, Fair Lady: The Twelve Lays of Marie De France (Hardcover)
This is a book I enjoyed in primary school and have now managed to obtain my own copy. The stories are beautifully written and the illustrations are incredible. It is not childishly written and I still enjoy the book as an adult, but it would be a lovely book to read with a child. I can just picture some of these stories being told round a campfire to a hushed family audience. Lewis uses a traditional storytelling prose style in her translation from the original French verses.
