Book Review of

The Adventures of Robin Hood

(Retold from the Howard Pyle original)

I chose to read The Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle for three reasons: 1) because I like to read adventure stories; 2) because my brother recommended it to me; and 3) because I read the back of the book and it sounded like a good story. I thought it would be about outlaws taking from the rich and giving to the poor. I also liked the movie very much and so I assumed I would like the book too.

When I read the book, I liked the adventures in the woods and the way Robin Hood and his men we so good at archery, fighting with the staff, climbing and hiding in the trees and tricking the Sheriff's men. Each chapter was a new adventure and I had no idea what was going to happen next. In many of the chapters, the adventure was to get more men for Robin's Band of Merry Men or to fight the Sheriff's men. They fought the Sheriff of Nottingham's men because to get money and justice for the poor. The Sheriff was always taking the people's money and land unfairly. Robin Hood fought him to prevent him from taking things from the people.

One of the adventures that I liked the most was when Robin Hood went with his men in disguise to the archery contest held by the Sheriff in Nottingham Town. Robin Hood split the arrow in the center of the target on the final round of shooting. He won the contest but the Sheriff would not give him the prize that was a golden arrow. He wouldn't give it to Robin because Robin said "I will not join your service."

I would rate this book as a four out of five stars because it left out some parts to make it a shorter book.

Classic Starts: The Adventures of Robin Hood (Classic Starts Series)

I ordered this because my 4 year old was fascinated by Robin Hood. He heard about Robin Hood and asked who is that? I told him some roughly recalled stories but I wanted to find more info for him. However this book is for much older kids. I realized once I received it and started reading. We will save it until he gets older. It is a lengthy book with some gruesome details about killing. My boy is too young for that kind of information. Maybe a boy of 8 or 9 would enjoy it. It is a bit frightening for us right now. No illustrations. It is well written. I think children can benefit from classics and I applaud this series. I am not sure if the information mentioned what age this would be appropriate for. I just took a chance.

I bought this for a 10 year old and ended up enjoying him reading ME a story for once. It's a sort of Reader's Digest Version for Kids.

All of these "Classic Starts" books introduce kids to some of the all time great stories in an interesting way.

I tutor kids and read books with them. I bought a copy of a Robin Hood book that said it was by Howard Pyle; I remember enjoying his book when I was a kid. I got it home and found it was simplified, for small children. It says his name on the cover but inside it says "Adapted by Deborah Kestel." It never would have occurred to me that they'd have someone rewrite a book and then put only the name of the original author on the cover -- as though it was the real book, by him. It's too childish for the kids I work with. So, I tried again. I went to Amazon and bought this book -- this copy. It has just arrived. It says only Howard Pyle's name on the cover, as you can see. But again, inside it says "Adapted by D.J. Arneson." Shame on Amazon for not warning readers that the book they are selling as being by Howard Pyle is not the real book by him at all.

What's wrong here is using Howard Pyle's name to sell this dumbed-down version of Robin Hood. It's not just abridged but completely rewritten and simplified. Not a classic at all.

"The Adventures of Robin Hood" is a collection of small stories involving Robin Hood doing either bad or good deeds.

My favorite part was when Robin hood shot epic arrows to save or to kill someone. The book is mainly telling you not to be bad but help others.
The book is good. It uses old English so it's slightly hard to understand. Young adults who enjoy heroic adventures should read this book! -- Phillip

This is a classic book I bought my son, so that he could read the wonderful stories I grew up on. Nicely made into a fine hard cover, this is durable, and will last a long time even if he falls asleep with it and rolls all over it, whilst reading it.
