An OK retelling of the classic Pyle version of Robin Hood done in a Sunday comics style.

REally good version for kids with the stories summarised well and humourous cartoons to support it.

Enjoyable tales of Robin Hood.
Sarah Huff
This book's format was very interesting to me. Each page was a different chapter in Robin Hood's life and those chapters were formatted like comic strips. Each strip had a sentence underneath it, but there were also words on the individual pictures as well. With so many things to keep your attention and to read and look at it was hard to get bored with this book. The illustrations were simple but the were also silly and caught the mood of this retelling.

Marcia's books are great, especially for reluctant readers. I had a lovely time teaching Shakespeare using her books for reluctant teens. Not only does it help with the older language, but also the imagery is fun and whimsical and goes well with her abbreviated text. I love the stories of Robin Hood, and this version is great. Fantastic for kids and adults alike.

Marcia Williams began to develop her distinctive comic-book style at an early age: "When I was about ten and wrote home to my family from boarding school," she says, "I never wrote normal letters. I tried to tell my family about what I was doing in a way that was more fun. Also, my parents didn't let me read comic books, so I decided to create my own."
