Most readers have heard of or know about Robin Hood so I won't go into too much detail about the story, it is a well known classic, but I will review the way the book is presented.
The presentation makes this book stand out; it has a green fabric cover, gold lettering and a period picture of Robin and Marion on the front. It feels like a book should, very tactile, it smells like a book and being hard back it should with care, stand the test of time. Maybe even as a hand me down from one generation to another.
There are 24 separate stories of adventures, and they are illustrated by one picture every other chapter, so it is not really a visual book, rather it is one to be read.
The first publication of this Everyman Children's Classic was in 1956 so the English language style is more like the traditional story of the period it was written in; it appears not to have been changed into a more contemporary style.
`Come back to Sherwood with me, jolly Friar,' begged Robin `I have come hither to seek you, with a summons from the Lady Marion, whose confessor you were. Truly when you broke my head with your staff I guessed you were the man I sought.'
Friar Tuck speaking to Robin.
It is a classic; the presentation of the book is first class.
