Robin Hood and His Merry Men

by Jane Louise Curry, John Lytle (Illustrator)

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-5-This solid retelling is accessible to younger readers, presenting seven basic stories without losing significant details. Curry does not include any version of Robin's death, or of King Richard's return and the end of the outlawry. Gray-and-black wash illustrations are not colorful, but do have an adventurous ambiance that goes well with the text. This version is for a slightly younger audience than Sarah Haynes's Robin Hood (Holt, 1989), and has a more inviting format.-JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
Carolyn Phelan
Curry provides a short, fluid retelling of the Robin Hood legends based on a fifteenth-century poem. There are tales about Robin becoming an outlaw; Little John joining the band; the Merry Men entertaining the Sheriff of Nottingham; and Robin helping Sir Richard repay a greedy abbot's loan. Thirteen nicely executed ink-and-wash drawings illustrate the book. Short and simple enough for children new to chapter books, this episodic volume will reward readers with its appealing subject, attractive design, and well-told tales.
