It's interesting to read the stories all the various Robin Hood movies are based on. ( )

Summary: Robin Hood was a town a hero among the poor people. Robin Hood would steal from the rich to give to the poor. He was also known because he was great at shooting bows and arrows. Robin Hood was a great helper for the community even though the rich disliked him.

I liked this myth, I always have. I think Robin Hood is a good example to help your friends out. However since he does steal from the rich to the poor it might give the kids the wrong idea that stealing is okay if you do it for the right reason.

My first and favorite book about Robin Hood. ( )

i thought this would be stupid and hard to follow but it was interesting and clear with lots of colourful pictures. ( )

I bought it primarily for the Hildebrandt illustrations--glossy and sunlit--but discovered a really lovely, comprehensive retelling of the Robin Hood legend(s). If you've heard it, it's in here--the duel with Little John, holding the Sheriff captive for dinner in the woods, saving friends from the gallows. It's also really fun to read if you're up on your Plantagenet family history (recommended: Alison Weir's Eleanor of Aquitaine). ( )

First words
Intro: Songs and legends of Robin Hood have charmed readers young and old for more than five hundred years.
In the days of good King Harry the Second of England - he of the warring sons - there were certain forests in the north country set aside for the King's hunting, and no man might shoot deer therein under penalty of death.
