Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The legend of Robin Hood has been around for hundreds of years, and the basic story of an outcast who fights the oppressors and helps the poor has been around even longer. In this new version, the story is accompanied by beautiful artwork and interesting bits of information that flesh out English history, societal struggles, weaponry, royalty and lots more to make the story accessible to today's readers. Robin, Little John, Maid Marion and the rest of the band will live again in this well crafted and visually pleasing version. Part of the "Eyewitness Classic" series.
Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
The Robin Hood legend is here retold within the "Eyewitness Classics" series. This means the emphasis is on the period itself as much as the story, and the background is wonderful. Sidebars and double-page spreads tell us everything we'll ever need to know about medieval life and history in England, as well as an update on the Robin Hood image via Hollywood. While this annotation is enlightening, it does tend to overwhelm the somewhat tepid narratopn. It all leaves one longing for the magical illustrations and the gloriously overblown prose of a Howard Pyle.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5This retelling stays true to the tale of Robin Hood, handed down through 14th-century ballads. Philip's version is fast-moving, readable, and child-friendly without becoming inane. His language generally evokes a sense of time and place. He does not change folklore, a relief in the onslaught of `90s politically correct revisionists. The problem here is not with the teller, but the typical "Eyewitness" series layout. The 11-chapter book is interrupted every two or three chapters for double-page spreads of background facts about forest life, religion, archery, and the crusades. Distracting illustrated footnotes border almost every page of the story. More importance is placed on information than on the narrative. In addition to the watercolors, there are photos and clippings from various archives: art, history, and movies. Harris favors a shorter, chunkier, probably more authentic Robin Hood than other artists have in the past. However, the Robin on the cover (a reverse image of an interior painting), looks stoned or witless, with feet as long as his calves. Marion, next to Robin, looks like an anorexic junkie. Bodies are well drawn, but stiff. Grade schoolers may be attracted to the Richard Scarry kind of busyness. Teachers will love the facts. This is, in short, geared to the short attention spans of the electronic information age.Helen Gregory, Grosse Pointe Public Library, MI
