Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Adventure. Romance. Mystery. Vengence. A little something for everyone in this abridged story of Robin Hood. Beginning with the history of Robin's magic arrow, this "Scribner's Storybook Classic" carefully meshes the lineage of Robin Hood with that of the arrow. Robin's band of merry men are introduced by name—from a young homeless wrestler named Will Stuteley to a cook named Roger to the tall, ungainly Little John. This book makes the Robin Hood story much clearer to those who are only aware of the Disney version or are intimidated by lengthier versions. Even Robin's mother is mentioned. How many of us had even thought that he had a mother? The re-telling of the story is enhanced by Wyeth's rich, intricate and colorful illustrations scattered throughout the work; my only complaint is that there are not enough of them. It is unfortunate that neither Paul Creswick nor N. C. Wyeth is with us to enjoy this attractive collaboration. A great addition to any library. 2003, Atheneum Books for Young Readers,
