About the Author
Howard Pyle was born on March 5, 1853 in Wilmington, Delaware. In 1894, he taught art at the Drexel Institute and in 1900 founded the Howard Pyle School of Illustration Art. Although he did not actually create the legends of the characters, nor have much regard for historical accuracy, he did write and illustrate stories about pirates, King Arthur and of course, “The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood.” Vincent Van Gogh was a fan of Pyle’s. Howard traveled to Italy to study mural painting in 1910 and died on November 9, 1911 in Florence of a kidney infection. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

If you have a child that is into archery then the stories of Robin's feats with his bow and arrows will have them outside practicing. You will read of them in taverns drinking Malmsey (ale). Robin Hood and his men were outlaws who believed in taking from the rich and giving to the poor or keeping some for themselves. Until the fight with Guy Gisbourne towards the end which was a fight to the death, Robin was not interested in killing people. He wanted to test their strength and agility etc. Of course, how he shows up disguised in front of the Sheriff of Nottingham more than once is hilarious! Unlike the movies, Maid Marian is just given a passing mention in the book.
Warning: The ending is very sad and our 8 year old daughter cried. After all Robin's adventures and escapes, his demise at the end was so very unlike the rest of his life. Please also note there are NO pictures in this book.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - should be in every family library.
If you ever get a chance to go visit Sherwood Forest and Kirklees Priory in England, do so!
The stories are told in a very nice manner . But , I didn't like the fact that Maid Marian was not mentioned in this book as she is also an important part of the book , and the writing in ancient English which is given in epilogue should've had a translated version under the writing .
Anyway , this book was great .
Four stars to it .
