Overview

Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men are the most courageous and misunderstood outlaws in the history of literature.

Young Robin, the best archer in all the land, is provoked into committing a crime against the all-powerful Sheriff of Nottingham. Forced into hiding in Sherwood Forest, Robin is soon joined by a group of colorful characters who flee to the forest to escape wrong and oppression. There is Little John, Robin's right-hand man; wily Friar Tuck; young Will Scarlet; the sly Tinker; among others. Together Robin and the Merry Men engage in feasts and fine adventures, boldly robbing the rich of their ill-gotten gains and dividing the spoils among the poor citizens. Follow the exploits of this rag-tag band of outcasts as they battle to clear their names, rescue the fair and gentle Maid Marion, and restore the rightful King of England to power. With a flavor of merry old England borrowed from the many ballads and ancient tales that were his sources, author Howard Pyle re-created the excitement and romance of the medieval world complete with knights and ladies, archery contests, golden arrows, revenge, and the quest for justice. This handsome edition, with charming illustrations by Scott McKowen, is sure to find a treasured place in your family's library. Book club questions by noted educator Arthur Pober, Ed.D., further enhance the reading experience.

Recounts the legend of Robin Hood, who plundered the king's purse and poached his deer and whose generosity endeared him to the poor.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheryl O'Sullivan
A graphic novel adaptation of the original Robin Hood story, this book makes the exciting but difficult story accessible to struggling readers. With only 32 pages and only a handful of words on each page, the story relies almost completely on its comic book style illustrations to tell the story. The plot follows the original tale and includes six chapters with such titles as, "The Merry Men," "Maid Marian," and "The King Returns," but with such limited text, much of the intricacies of the original plot are necessarily left unexplored. The large framed cartoon illustrations will engage any reader who is drawn to the graphic novel style of book. The end of the book includes information about the original author and other references to his work. Information about the adapter, a glossary, and a listing of websites are also included. Other books in this series that may be of interest to reluctant readers include Moby Dick, Peter Pan, and White Fang. Reviewer: Sheryl O'Sullivan

    Good Stories About Real Men

    In an age when masculinity has turned topsy-turvy, it's good to know there is still literature out there which offers positive role models of strong, masculine men. Robin and his merry followers are the best kind of men: generous, compassionate, brave, loyal, tough and ready to fight for a just cause when they see one. Robin especially so. He is a born leader, a man so secure in his masculinity that he registers both joy and sorrow without equal ease. Unlike so many of today's media heroes who'd respond with a callous quip, Robin is laid-low with remorse when he takes a man's life and is outlawed. His gentleness and generosity of spirit attract everyone around him. People admire him for who he is as well as his prowess as an archer. His complete lack of malice is a tonic in a brutal world. There are some who may not like Pyle's manner of writing in Medieval sounding English, but I think it gives the stories an authenticity which transports the reader back to Sherwood Forest and summer days and eating meat pies with your hands and drinking from a leather sack. In short, if you have boys or just like good, clean, adventure stories with lots of humor and good values, I highly recommend these classic tales.

Best book that I have ever read! Extraordinary!

    Find a four-star copy and don't bother with this one

    This free copy of Robin Hood has some issues - find the one with 4 stars.
    Specifically, the OCR program was unable to read parts of the book, and you get jibberish in the middle of some sentences. The Jibberish is so annoying, that my kids would stop trying to read the book.

    The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood

    I really enjoyed this book. Broken up into different stories of the famed Merry Men, I was drawn into each of the plots, and found that it was a very quick read.

    While some may get confused of the diffente plots jumpking back and forth, Pyle lables a heading for each of the different story lines, so the reader will know whom he's reading of.

    Very glad to have this book as a part of my permanet collection.

    This book's format doesn't work. The words are confined to a narrow column in the center of the page, and even if I change the font size and margins nothing changes. I am using a Nook Simple Touch Reader. Go get a different version if you actually want to be able to read the book.

    great version of the robin hood classic!

    i fell in love with this cover and loved that it was still the classic Howard Pyle story, only downer is that they didn't use Howard Pyle's art, but otherwise, great buy.

    Quite enjoyable.

    This book wasn't the best, but still quite good. Some parts i didn't understand. I wouldn't really recommend this to a friend, but then again, a good plot. Never the less, My highest score for this book is 4 stars. Also the book, is a bit long, and the reader might close the book as quick as a snap, but out of interest.

    Here's a start, i was sort of disappointed, when i started to read the book, I was interested. But eventually, I finished the book, and i noticed something. There was a recurring action; Robin Hood kept finding people for his party, ether he or one of his party members was captured, and he or one of his party members had to save them.

    But the good part of the book, there was always a plot twist. One part was when the sheriff almost succeed in taking robin hood to prison, and almost killing him, but in the parts where you least expect his party to save him. Or when someone new saves them. Even when something doesn't go as planned, or when someone from the party dies. Everything goes out of the order and surprises you. So, once again, this is a good book. But not recommended.
