The story tells the tale of a boy who is forced to beg for alms even in the most terrible cold. Chekhov wrote many short stories, and perhaps more than any other Russian writer it is he who helped develop this genre. If he doesn’t get anything, he will be beaten. Brevity is the sister of talent is a famous phrase attributed to him. He was able to express complex ideas so concisely that anyone could understand them.

The Canterbury Tales – A Retelling. The General Prologue. Here bygynneth the Book of the Tales of Caunterbury. When the soft sweet showers of April reach the roots of all things, refreshing the parched earth, nourishing every sapling and every seedling, then humankind rises up in joy and expectation. The west wind blows away the stench of the city, and the crops flourish in the fields beyond the walls.
This book retells the Russian folk tale of the Enormous (or Giant) Turnip. Grandfather can't pull the turnip up, because it is so big, so he enlists the aid of everyone around. The illustrations contain a bunch of superfluous bunnies standing around with goofy grins. They have nothing to do with the story and I can't see their point at all, except for artificially inflating the cuteness factor. While I like the story well enough, everyone pulling together to accomplish something, I'll look for a more visually appealing version. 2 people found this helpful.
