At last the big boy said, in a low, growling way:

"Now then, are you going to give me them things?"

"No," said Robin, through his set teeth; and again there was silence.

"You give 'em to me, and I'll show you the way to where they live and they'll give you roast deer and roast pig p'raps, for two of ourn's gone. Master says he counted 'em, and they aren't all there, and he wales me with a strap because I let them take the pigs, and next time he counts 'em there's more than there was before, but he's whipped me all the same. You give me them things, and I'll take you where you'll get lots to eat, and milk and eggs and apples. D'yer hear?"

"I won't give them to you. I can't—I mustn't," cried Robin passionately.

The boy said nothing, but looked away at his pigs, two of which were fighting.

Another Librovox recording.
Talk about misleading titles. I was under the impression that I would be enjoying a nice tale of Robin's youth. Instead I get a self-indulgent boy escapist tale. I'd probably be nicer had I knew what was coming, but our lead (the Sheriff of Nottingham's son ---also name...more

This was a rather unexpected version of Robin Hood, still true to the legend but from a different starting point. When it says young it doesn't mean a child, I gathered from the reading he was in his late teens.

The years pass by quite quickly over only a few pages rather than documenting the lon...more

This is a rather cute children's tale of Robin Hood. Having reread The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood a few months ago it was wonderful to read a Robin Hood story that was happy from start to finish.

This was an adorable story and different from what I expected from the title. If you like the story of Robin Hood, you'll most likely love "Young Robin Hood" It's a good story to read in an afternoon or two.
Everything I have read by George Manville Fenn has been excellent.

Cute little story

Despite what the synopsis says, this isn't a book about a young Robin Hood, instead it's a story about a boy called Robin who lives with Robin Hood for a time. It was an interesting little story, though not particularly believable.

I had expected this to be a tale of Robin Hood himself when he was young. Instead, this is a sweet little adventure about a little boy who comes to stay with Robin Hood's gang. Kind of the type of fantasy I would imagine most boys would dream up, spending time learning to shoot arrows with Littl...more

So very very boring. Bland flat characters who's actions don't make a lot of sense. Young robins reaction to the who situation is much to happy go lucky. It doesn't make sense, him taking all this outlaw stuff in stride, especially if he's the son of the sheriff. Maybe the kid is slow?

He's a Mar...more

At first I thought this book was about Robin Hood's childhood. It wasn't. The story mainly focuses on a little boy name Robin, the sheriff's only son who got lost in the woods.

Little Robin was abandoned by his servant when their cattle and goods were robbed. Robin Hood and his men took the boy i...more
