Overview

This is a fun version of Robin Hood for anyone, even though it was written for fifth and sixth grade students, and even has a "Suggestions for Teachers" section. It has 62 hand-drawn illustrations by Milo Winter. Each chapter starts with an illustration. There are 18 full-page drawings, and 21 songs, complete with both music and lyrics.

The story of Robin Hood is a legend. It is probably based on a real person who lived in England in the 12th century and around whom lots of imaginary stories have developed. The story of Robin Hood is set during the time when King Richard 1st was away fighting in the Middle East and his brother, Prince John, ruled England. At that time, England was governed by the king and a small group of wealthy lords who owned most of the land. Many people were very poor – they worked for the lords as farmers and had little freedom of their own. While Prince John ruled England, they were particularly badly treated and exploited. Robin Hood and Maid Marian came from wealthy families near the town of Nottingham. Neither liked what was happening to the people. Robin spoke out against the unfairness of the tax system and became a champion of the poor. In particular, he became an enemy of the Sheriff of Nottingham (the man in charge of the area where Robin Hood lived). He hid in nearby Sherwood Forest to escape from the Sheriff, and robbed the rich and gave the money back to the poor. Many men joined him in his fight against injustice.

* This e-book is a true representation, hand-transcribed from a high-definition scan of a pre-1923 print version of the book. Unlike other e-copies of the book, it was not produced by using Optical Character Recognizion (OCR). OCR-scanning old books is seldom, if ever, error-free. This often results in an e-book with many **, ^^, >> and typographic errors when OCR can't read the word or punctuation correctly.

* "True representation" means that if the print version has any inscriptions or previous owner's name in the front of the book, this e-book might as well. Blank pages that often separate chapters might also be left in. And pages that may have a folded corner or other, similar damage might be included, too.

* In other words, no changes or as few as possible have been made to either illustrations or text in order to bring you an e-book that is as close to the original as possible.
