Synopsis of A Canterbury Tale: A Game for Children by William Bloom:

Set against the background of English provincial life, it tells of Jenny, thirteen and Tristram, fourteen, strangely drawn together by unseen influence of eighteen year old Kelvin. But what is his motive in working the two children towards their love affair? If it is love, love for whom? The girl or the boy? And if not love, is it only voyeurism and lust?
