A traditional version of the stories,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Robin Hood (Classic Literature with Classical Music) (Audio CD)
I bought this because we needed something new to listen to in the car, and I wanted my children to be aware of the legend of Robin Hood.
My boys (6 and 8) love it and have listened to it several times, but it's worth mentioning that it is a bit of a dark version of the stories and not a fun romp in the forest!
The narrator puts lots of expression into the stories and his voice is easy to listen to. The language is a bit old-fashioned and I wasn't sure what the boys would make of it, but they didn't have any trouble understanding it and I think it's actually quite good for them to hear a bit of more traditional English!
All in all, we like it and I'm glad I bought it, but it's certainly very different from the TV series of a few years back!
