I recommend to all.
Enjoy and Be Blessed.
PS It makes it a lot more fun if you read it aloud to a child.
I loved the Robin Hood tales as a child, read some other more kid-friendly versions of it time and time again as a boy and so I thought I'd tackle the original* here.
And? It was awesome. If you liked it then you'll like it now. Friar Tuck, Little John, Will Scarlet - the whole band is there, frolicking and robbi ...more
It struck me that Robin Hood presents some lessons from the 1200s on masculinity, which we might not learn in our culture. The typical reference to Robin's merry men today tends to be an off color homosexual refer ...more

After getting a taste of Robin Hood in Ivanhoe, I decided to find out more about him. The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood takes its basis from the many old ballads about Robin Hood. As a result, it is a combination of mini-stories. Howard Pyle does a commendable job in joining all these stories into a cohesive novel. It was fun following the adventures of Robin, Little John, Friar Tuck, and the rest of the merry band!

I love how the reader does all the voices. And when the characters burst into song, as they are wont to do on occasion, the narrator even sings in character! I laughed at the fun language Robin Hood and Little John use: Any good character is stout and ...more

The various tales are not linked together well. Frankly, Robin comes off not as a swashbuckler, or much of a heroic figure at all. His competency as both a thief, adventurer, and leader should really have been called into question ...more

The particular issue that I read has been a part of my library, apparently since my 6th Christmas, as it is inscribed on the back from my grandmother, with the date: 12/25/72. Mine is a Classic Press Educators Edition, and while the cover shown isn’t exactly correct, it is as close as I could find. I have very clear memories of perusing these books throughout my childhood (this is one of a set of classics that includes such beloved tales as Kipling’s “Th ...more
I discovered this book in a library in Milan, Italy. After reading the prologue, I fell in love with it, and I received it later for Christmas. The story of the young outlaw was totally captivating. The Adventures of Robin Hood (by Howard Pyle) was humorous, full of dares, and, well, a great read.
You would think that Robin Hood would be constantly hiding from the Sheriff, but no instead, Robin Hood was always very "polite." In fact, he oftentimes invited the Sheriff to din ...more
