Meet the Author

Howard Pyle (1853-1911) was a celebrated artist, author, and teacher -- and a primary figure in the history of children's literature. Not only did he guide and inspire such artistic talents as N. C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, and Jessie Willcox Smith, but he was also a master storyteller in his own right. "The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, Pepper & Salt, " and "The Wonder Clock" are among the many stories and folktales that he wrote and illustrated.

David Case is the founder and current president of Live Free Ministries, a ministry dedicated to restoring kingdom power and authority to spiritual leadership. Since the early 1990s, David Case has held retreats for both pastors and lay persons, helping them break through bondages and pointing them toward fulfilling the call of God on their lives. Having pastored the same church for eighteen years, Pastor Case gives other pastors the tools they need to implement the lifegiver model into a whole-church setting. Case also co-hosts a radio program and ministers internationally. It is David Case's heart to blend "the supernatural of the spiritual realm" with a very solid application into the natural realm.

My daughter loved this book. She chose it to do a book report and loved the book. This book kept her interest where other books don't seem to do that. I recommend this book to kids 9-11 years old.

I liked the book The Adventures of Robin Hood Classic Starts, because Robin Hood steals from the rich and gives to the poor. It was exciting because there was a lot of sword fights and archery matches, and I like archery. The author did a good job writing it because there was no slow parts in the book and the book made you want to keep reading it. The Adventures of Robin Hood, Classic Starts, is about Robin Hood shooting one of the sheriffs men, and is being forced to join forces with the outlaws of the Sherwood Forest. The sheriff and his men keep trying to capture Robin Hood, like the shooting match in Nottingham town. The winner of the competition gets a Gold arrow. The sheriff of Nottingham¿s town doesn't realize that he gave Robin Hood the gold arrow until they write a message to the sheriff. Robin Hood steals from the rich by inviting them to the big tree where they have a feast for them and then Robin Hood steals most of their money. Robin Hood also robs people that are passing through the middle of the Sherwood Forest. Robin Hood gives to the poor by buying the butchers meat cart and selling the meat for less than its worth or giving it to people who cant buy it or are old. Robin Hood and the other outlaws get in sword fights and usually win, until Robin Hood runs into Will Gamwell, Robin Hood¿s nephew. Will Gamwell hit a man who threatened his father and got charged with murder. The people that are part of the outlaws are Robin Hood, Little John, Will Gamwell, Arthur a Bald, and a few more. I learned that Robin Hood is an outlaw because he shot one of the sheriffs of Nottingham Town¿s men. He is forced to go live with the outlaws of the Sherwood Forest or risk getting killed by the sheriff.

I actually bought this book for my son, but I did read it before I gave it to him. Not only did he enjoy it, I also enjoyed reading it myself.

Annie Richards knows there are a million things to look out for- bike accidents, food posining, chicken pox, typhiod fever, run away zoo animals, and posin oak. Thats why being careful is so important. Everyone keeps telling Annie not to worry so much, and that she's just fine. But they thought her brother Jared was fine to, and Jared died. It takes a new neighbor,who looks as plain as a box of toothpicks but has some surprising secrects of her own, to make Annie relize that her plans of being careful arent working as well as she hoped. And with a lot of help from thosse around her- a book about a pig too- Annie just may find a way to close her umbrella of sadness and step back into the sunshine.
