It is a story of romance, action, and adventure. It takes place during the reign of King Richard the Lionhearted during the crusades. The Earl of Huntington is outlawed and becomes Robin Hood, Master of the Bow and Arrow. Robin Hood is a book for thrill-thirsty adventurers who are brave enough to come along on the exploits of Robin Hood and his friends Maid Marian, Little John, and Friar Tuck. It wastes too much time on lines said by the characters. It's a gripping adventure, though, with a shocking ending, and a book you just might enjoy. reviewer age 10

This book was a good book if I ever saw one. I think that Roger Lacenlyn Green is a genius for the way that he put together the lore of Robin Hood. If you like a good classic, then this is the book for you.

This is an exelent book that children will enjoy at all ages. The story flows well, and the cloth covored books will look good on your shelves.

A Robin Hood fan I was not. Towards the end of the book the stories became really interesting. I'm not recommending to start on the back third because Robin Hood fan or not you'll also appreciate the book at the end.
