Robin Hood is a good fellow who helps the poor, until he is tricked into killing one of the King's deer. Now he must hide, especially from the Sheriff of Nottingham. Go with Robin on his many adventures as he meets people like Little John and Friar Tuck, and read about the competitions that he enters. Robin Hood steals from the rich and gives to the poor. He is a hero to the needy, but an outlaw to the Sheriff. Will Robin be able to avoid the Sheriff's traps, read the book to find out.
This was a very good book. I thought all the activity and adventure was exciting. I enjoyed all the interesting characters Robin Hood met. I felt as if I was with Robin on all his journeys. I was happy when I read this book.
I would recommend this book to anyone from age 9 and up. They might enjoy it more. If readers like laughter, adventure, action, and suspense, than this is the book for you. Give it a try, you'll see how good it is.
