Robin Hood

J. Walker McSpadden

Book Overview: 

Robin Hood is a heroic outlaw in English folklore. A highly skilled archer and swordsman, he is known for "robbing from the rich and giving to the poor", assisted by a group of fellow outlaws known as his "Merry Men". Traditionally Robin Hood and his men are depicted wearing Lincoln green clothes. The origin of the legend is claimed by some to have stemmed from actual outlaws, or from ballads or tales of outlaws.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Sheriff of Nottingham beside you?" quoth the other pompously.

Robin scratched his head.

"They do say that Robin Hood and his men care little for the Sheriff," he said.

"Pooh!" said the Sheriff. "I would not give that for their lives, if I could once lay hands upon them." And he snapped his fingers angrily. "But Robin Hood himself was on this very road the last time I came to town," said the other.

The Sheriff started at the crackling of a twig under his horse's feet, and looked around.

"Did you see him?" he asked.

"Aye, that did I! He wanted the use of this mare and cart to drive to Nottingham. He said he would fain turn butcher. But see!"

As he spoke he came to a turn in the road, and there before them stood a herd of the King's deer, feeding. Robin pointed to them and continued:

"There is my herd of cattle, good Master Sheriff! How do you like them? Are they not fat and fair to se. . . Read More

I really did like this retelling of the classic tale of Robin Hood. It was just how I would have pictured it, and I even learned something about the plot that I hadn't known before. I recommend this for anyone who wants a light read, as this is a nice quick to read book.

I used the Readercoin app to listen to this book. I don't like that the audio speed can't be changed because the narrator spoke slowly. Anyways, this book was very repetitive. I realized every chapter ends the same and there is hardly any "stealing from the rich and giving to the poor" that I gre...more

Three stars for the overly abridged McSpadden version of the story (bite-sized chapters aimed at younger readers or for bedtime storytime), but five stars for the wonderful painting illustrations by the great Greg Hildebrandt, the reason I bought this edition. Famous for his and his brother's Tol...more

This book was one of the biggest surprise for me this year so far. I did not really expect anything from it mostly because I did not have a good opinion on the modern tales of this hero. This book however did a wonderful job at recreating these timeless stories in a chronological order. The outla...more

i loved it. the illustrations are stunning. i should read the full version. (made me wanna live in the forest lol.)

"I like the adventure and I like the action and I thought it was pretty cool. I like the rescues and I like Robin Hood in general and I need to watch the movie. Robin Hood is the son of a noble, his lands get taken away because he's so nice and he gives money to the poor. All the nobles hate him...more

The reason I found this book interesting is because for all the Robin Hood based stories I've seen, I don't think I've actually read the original base stories such as these. Also, it was cool to read something and think, "Hey! I saw something like that in Hood by Lawhead. Or, "Look, that's someth...more

A delightful short-story collection recounting the origins and legendary escapades of England's most famous outlaw.

Aside from the anthropomorphic Disney version, and the occasional satire, this reader's Robin Hood experience was pretty limited. I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable this rea...more
