An arrow whistles through the trees as a band of outlaws ride boldly against the Sheriff of Nottingham's men. They seek to overturn injustice, to rob from the rich and give to the poor. They ride, from their hideaway in Sherwood Forest, on to great adventure against tyranny in Old England. They are Little John, Friar Tuck, Will Scarlet, and, of course, the greatest archer of them all, Robin Hood. Download and start listening now!

    " This book is a bit hard to read for me because it was written in old english. I loved the adventures and the tales of the archer robin hood though, and would reccoment this book to all ages as soo as they can read it. I rate this book 5 stars for giving me the sence of being there with the story, in that place and time period. "

    " This is definitely worth giving a read. The beginning was a bit slow but midway through it really picked up. The characters are endearing and I actually did find myself tearing up towards the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lillian Angelovic | 11/20/2013

    " Thoroughly enjoyed this story and have been judgmental about every film version of it since then! If you choose to read the ending, be prepared: it's terribly sad. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andy Goodrich | 10/20/2013

    " This book is the original Robin Hood and lacks a constant plot to drive the story. Also it is an older style of writing and I did not like it. But if you want to know where the folklore started give it a read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jenny | 10/19/2013

    " So boring. This has to be one of the stupidest books I have ever read. And this is a classic? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcia Brisson Van Camp | 10/3/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Godard | 9/6/2013

    " I think I first read this when I was 11 or 12. Oh, was I in love with Robin Hood! Makes you want to give it all up and live as an outlaw in the forest if you can do it the way he does. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 8/3/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison Marx | 3/3/2013

    " This book really takes you to another world. The dialogue is transformative and fights of valor and courage give youths warmest feelings with each chapter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mroberts | 1/22/2013

    " fun to read. older writing style. makes you think a little, but not too difficult! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Davis | 1/2/2013

    " As a child, I LOVED Robin Hood. Anything I could get my hands on, I would just eat it up. This book was no exception; in fact I think it was one of my favorite novelizations of Robin Hood, my only complaint is the lack of Maid Marian! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aimee | 9/12/2012

    " This is a very entertaining, classic rendition of Robin Hood. "

    " Robin Hood was good and all but the adventures wer boring. Nothing really got my intrest but I keepet reading and it got a little better but I don't recomend it to people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Brisbois | 5/16/2011

    " One of the most epic tales ever written. A heroic tale that I'll never forget "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/22/2011

    " a great edition of the stories, but the antiquated language makes it a bit formidable for younger readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 2/27/2011

    " 3 and up, read-aloud at bedtime, compilation of many traditional Robin Hood stories, descriptive, entertaining, adventure "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry schwabacher | 2/12/2011

    " The classic tale with no modern updates. This is the one we read as children - no psychology! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monkeybob | 6/13/2010

    " This book is about when Robin was a young boy he killed a man and became an outlaw. Now he livesoff the land with his fellow outlaws. they have shooting contest and they hunt the king's deer. the sherrif is always trying to capture the outlaws,they alwaysescape from him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Priscilla | 9/1/2009

    " This was so much fun! I loved the language and the humor, and the portrayal of Robin as a guy who often gets beaten in a fight despite being a great shot. Also, his death is in my opinion far more tragic than most tragedies - possibly because of his good humor and patience throughout the whole book. "

    " it was very merry. no stories of maid marian (i dont know how thats spelled), but that doesnt mean that it wasn't entertaining. the poetry was pretty interesting. "
