Review by Rosenstern
I was always a big fan of Robin Hood. These were a bunch of short stories based on Robin's adventures. I guess it's the legend that surrounds him, and how he helped the poor. I rooted for him the whole way through. Worth it, if only for the legends.
Review by jknuts1
This book was a good version of the Robin Hood tale. I especially liked the occasional black and white illustrations added to the text since it broke up the long read. It allowed you to construct your own visualizations of the characters and setting, but brought you back on track for some clarification and extra details here and there. I also liked the way that he wrote Marian's character differently than most. In this version, Marian was a fighter, and didn't just fill the role of pretty girl needing to be rescued. The big idea of this book is not lawless-ness, but the need for righteousness!
