This book offers a different look into the tale of Robin Hood. It's a very detailed illustrated version of the tale and it provides a lot of emphasis on the story. The illustrations also help the reader visualize or place themselves in England during this time period. I know children love to hear about great adventures but I know sometimes its hard to imagine yourself there...this book does a great job of transporting readers into Midevil England. I would recommend that this book is for a more mature audience so, late 3rd grade through 4th and 5th grade. At their age, I think they should hear stories about always doing right and helping others no matter what and how to stand up against "the bad guys". There are also notes of the importance of friendship and loyalty. ( )

So much fun to read! IF, like me, you'd only previously seen the old Errol Flynn movie and stuff like that, you'll be quite surprised to find that Robin doesn't always come out as a heroic figure--he can be quite the fool! And Maid Marian isn't just your typical legendary lady (aka window-dressing). I intend to reread this book many times and look forward to reading it to my kids someday. ( )

The plot follows Robin Hood as he becomes an outlaw after a conflict with foresters and through his many adventures and run-ins with the law. Each chapter tells a different tale of Robin as he recruits Merry Men, resists the authorities, and aids his fellow man. The popular stories of Robin defeating Little John in a fight with staffs, of his besting at the hands of Friar Tuck, and of his collusion with Alan-a-Dale all appear. In the end, Robin and his men are pardoned by King Richard Lionheart and his band are incorporated into the king's retinue, much to the dismay of the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
In merry England in the time of old, when good King Henry the Second ruled the land, there lived within the green glades of Sherwood Forest, near Nottingham Town, a famous outlaw whose name was Robin Hood.
Quotations
if ye do strike, strike hard, and see that there be no need to strike again.
So passed the seasons then, so they pass now, and so they will pass in time to come, while we come and go like leaves of the tree that fall and are soon forgotten.

Disambiguation notice
This is indeed both written and illustrated by Howard Pyle, though many publishers have used Pyle's text with other artists illustrating the story. Louis Rhead also wrote and illustrated the story in 1912, and portrays Robin more comically than Pyle does. Though both are derived from the same root sources, they are very different.
ISBN 0451522842 is a Signet Classic edition of The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood.
