Additional Information:
This collection of animal stories for children includes a version of the Nun's Priest's Tale, here called "Chanticleer and Pertelotte."  It is accompanied by two black-and-white illustrations, one showing the dogs, birds, and other creatures running (presumably chasing the fox); the other depicts the fox trying to lure Chanticleer out of the tree.  The images both capture a sense of motion and considerable detail: in the image of Chanticleer in the tree, leaves are visible on the hedges in the background of the image, and the texture of the fox's tail differs from that of the rest of his fur.
