Its a solid telling of the old ballads in prose form rather than any sort of twisty re-telling. A fun read - and a really good time in a sweet, nostaglic way to revisit the characters as they orginally were.

I read this book for the first time when I was ten, twelve years old. My library had a Dutch version of the book, and I absolutely loved it. I must have borrowed it at least five more times after that. When I was fourteen, I went looking to purchase this book, but unfortunately, it was no longer for sale anywhere, not in Dutch, not in English.

This was the version of Robin Hood I grew up reading - well written, exciting and perfect to intrigue a young mind with a life and time that is in the past. The good thing about legends like this is that they never go out of fashion and teach us more about the kind of person we'd like to be.
