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 really apprectaied the fact that Sutcliff manages not to make it sound like the characters are in a Leave It To Beaver production of Robin Hood with 1950's slang - as much of the historical fiction written in the 1950's is guilty of.

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.
