Robin Hood

Robin Hood is a very interesting story that everyone should read. One thing that I liked about this book is that it is an adventure story where people take risks. As soon as one adventure is done, another starts right away, so it is endless adventure until the last page. In the story new things happen every page, which is another thing that I really like about this book. Also I like that Robin and his group help people in need and take from people who are wealthy. Robin Hood is a great book for people of all ages, especially for people who like to read adventure stories or who just like to read.

A PRINCELY TALE

Robin HoodE. Charles Vivian, Compiled by Cooper EdensThe exciting and timeless tale about "the prince of thieves" is more beautiful than ever in this special "Classic Illustrated Edition" title. As with the series' previous titles -- "Peter Pan," "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," "Pinocchio" and "Aesop's Fables" -- "Robin Hood" is illustrated with a virtual best-of variety of color and black-and-white images from a collection of archival sources. There are more than 100 splendid images in all, dating from the 12th to the 20th century and created by artists as diverse as N.C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle, Walter Crane and Honor C. Appleton. The range is considerable, the fine-detail of the works is immensely impressive, the art restoration is impeccable, and each antique image is uniquely charming. The lack of a consistent visual style is initially jarring, but quickly it becomes apparent that this inconsistency is the very source of the book's appeal, particularly for retro fans attracted to ye olde graphics. The text itself remains loyal to E. Charles Vivian's classic version of the story -- with most of the content, spelling and grammar intact from the 1906 edition, making this respectful tribute to an old masterpiece worth its weight in gold marks.
