This was awesome!! I loved the writing style and the characters, and I giggled out loud at some parts. :) I'll definitely pick this up again when I need a fun story!

I loved this book when I was younger.

This book brings me back to my childhood. :)

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 something

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 read t
