    1. A cute and entertaining version of the Robin Hood stories! I think I still kind of like the Disney movie the best, though, haha.


    2. This is part of the Everyman Children's Classics series which I have been slowly collecting for a number of years. Its a case of picking one up when I see the price is right.Well I will admit that the Adventures of Robin Hood is one of those tales everyone (including me) seems to know. Or at least so I thought. Well this book had a few surprises for me. To start with this book was originally written in 1956 and this is a faithful reproduction on that edition. What surprised me was how faith so m [...]


    3. Αυτή ακριβώς την έκδοση την είχα διαβάσει στο δημοτικό γύρω στις 50 φορές Ακόμα θυμάμαι την δομή του βιβλίου και την αυθαίρετη μετάφραση ονομάτων, τύπου Little John = Τζωνάκης και Will Scarlet = Γουίλ ο Κόκκινος!!!!


    4. Pure adventure and a wonderful read with the boys. Green knows how to weave together action scenes and each tale causes the reader to lean in and be a part of the story There is a reason this is a classic tale. I highly recommend this book as well as Green's "King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table". Here's one of my favorite quotes from this book as Robin first calls forth his merry men in Sherwood Forest:"Now, my friends, we do not take from these and their kind to enrich ourselves. We [...]


    5. I've always wanted to read Robin Hood. Yes, it is absolutely from my obsession with the Disney fox movie and yes, that is still the greatest cartoon of all time (according to me) I grew up obsessed with it and wore the VHS tape out and I could probably quote the entire movie from memory.So, does the real thing measure up? Yes!!! I think they complimented each other well! This book is absolutely suitable for a younger reader (there is death in it, but not gruesome) if anything negative its too sh [...]


    6. First of all, the Folio Society edition of this book is absolutely gorgeous to see and touch. Secondly, I'm surprised I never read this when I was younger? Somehow, this book escaped my attention. Who knows why.Essentially, this book is quite similar to Howard Pyle's, with two main differences. The language is more accessible, and Marian is present and has a role (rather than being mentioned in passing only once). There were a few chapters with stories I'd never heard before. Namely, Robin being [...]


    7. The author, Roger Green, had a distinct purpose for writing The Adventures of Robin Hood. While he did not state the purpose in the story, it is very clear. In the case of most myths, legends, and tall tales the adventures and actions of the heroes are almost never told in one large volume. Green’s purpose was to unite the stories of Robin Hood into an attractive narrative format without completely removing the ballads (pieces of which remain at the start of every chapter). In unifying the sto [...]


    8. Another retelling of the Robin Hood Legend. Roger Lancelyn Green's retelling, a bit more modern having been published in 1956, draws heavily upon the old ballads and plays as well as the works of Alfred Noyes, Tenneyson and Scott.I found this Robin Hood to more closely resemble the Robin Hood that modern pop culture has given us or I guess this might be the Robin Hood the the modern retellings have gained some inspiration. Green's Robin started out as the Earl of Huntingdon who was selling his l [...]


    9. Robin Hood war schon als Kind eine meiner liebsten Figuren in der Literatur und auch heute noch finde ich die Vorstellung von einem Rebellen, der die Reichen beraubt, ohne sich selbst bereichern zu wollen, faszinierend. Nur - Roger Lancelyn Greens "Robin Hoods Abenteuer ist nicht wirklich gelungen. Green war wie seine Freunde C.S. Lewis und Tolkien von Mythen begeistert und wollte die überlieferten Mythen um Robin Hood zu einer Sammlung verschmelzen. Tatsächlich hat er auch die einzelnen Gesch [...]


    10. 4.0 Stars.I have always been fascinated with Robin Hood and wanted to read some of the stories written about him for quite some time now, though finding a book and author who portrayed the whole saga as reliably as possible overwhelmed me. I found this edition of Green in a secondhand store in New Zealand for 50 cents and couldn’t resist, because at a price like that you can’t really go wrong.Though I liked the book, it obviously is aimed at younger readers or people only interested in an ov [...]


    11. In a time of oppression, where the rich grows richer and the poor grows poorer, one man will challenge the corrupted prince and rebel in the name of God and justice.The tale of Robin Hood is well known and there have been many variations. However this book ties together a lot of the old fashion tales of Robin Hood. (and does one hell of a job at it)The book takes us through the life of Robin Hood, from his birth to his death. Meanwhile, we are thrown into his merry adventures and introduced to h [...]


    12. its was alright as far as repeative rescues go. every attack was the same basic thing. Robin wears a custom, tricks the bad guys, then jumps out and says "HAHA!i am robin hood!" Its cute for a kids but i suppose, but not for someone looking for a stimulating read. i really only finished so i could finally put it on its place of honor on my Robin Hood shelf in my room. (Yes, i have a whole shelf solely for Robin Hood novels. Sue me.) Anyway, i decided to give "The Adventures of Robin Hood" Three [...]


    13. It seems incredible to me that this book, first published in 1956, represents the first time that someone tried to collect all of the various Robin Hood stories and develop them into a coherent whole. As the author noted in his introduction, this is in somewhat extreme contrast with the legends of King Arthur. The result is a collection of short stories which very occasionally seem a little contradictory but which overall do give the sense of a coherent narrative - from the origins of the hero t [...]


    14. It's mostly a just a collection of standalone short stories, which I wasn't too fond of as I would have preferred a single cohesive story. However, the stories are pretty entertaining, if a little repetitive. The following is a list consisting of plot points and the probability that they appear in a chapter (each chapter is essentially a short story).60% - An archery contest that Robin Hood wins.60% - A friendly fight with quarterstaves that Robin Hood wins. One or both participants will finish [...]


    15. Roger Lancelyn Green makes an interesting attempt at turning the disparate Robin Hood legends and traditions into one long narrative, threading in stories and sources as diverse as Anthony Munday and Sir Walter Scott, the medieval ballads and pageant plays, and the various other sources. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, with seeming contradictions popping up here and there with little to justify them, but on the whole it does tie you a greater sense of time passage and character develop [...]


    16. Another book that has just been sitting around collecting dust, kind of my reading goal this summer I'm noticing. Anyways, this is something I really should have read when I first got it because I really like Robin Hood. Robin Hood is still my all time favorite literary hero. Reading this though with some knowledge on history you have to realize that there are some real people in this story. King Richard and Prince John were actually kings of England. I wonder if this story was political propaga [...]


    17. "The Adventures of Robin Hood" is Green's attempt to gather and organize all the legends and myths of Robin Hood in one complete storyline. Of course the chapters are very episodic and fragmental as a consequence of the original material, but Green manages fairly good. There's a great sense of continuity present in this book.The story itself is very repetitive, but the characters are fairly agreeable and well represented. Especially Lady Marian who turned out to be a lot more than the average "d [...]


    18. I honestly went into this book expecting not to like it. You see, I'm obsessed with BBC's TV series Robin Hood, so I expected that I wouldn't like the "real" (or as close to it as one can get) version. But I was pleasantly surprised. I could actually merge the two versions in my mind quite well.It was quite well written, taken, as much as possible, from old ballads and plays about Robin Hood, I really liked it. Green truly picked the best versions of all the different stories, and I loved how th [...]


    19. Okay, yes this was for kiddies, but it was highly entertaining and an easy read for the poor busy senior who had to finish a book in 24 hours. Each chapter was like a mini story, the first few set up how robin was born and how he got his outlaw band set up. The next few were introducing new characters such as friar tuck and little John and allin-a-dale. The next few chapters were individual adventures such as when Robin goes to an archery contest to win a silver arrow. This was a well written bo [...]


    20. An extremely enjoyable classic that had me laughing out loud, so much so that turning pages was a pleasure. This somehow managed to hold my attention just long enough to pull me into its realm of enchantment. It's been forever since a book did that to me. In fact, I'm kind of starting to miss it now. :|Really, Robin? Oh, thank you! Thank you!I'll just wait for it like this, then:


    21. This was a very fun, entertaining book, at the beginning, Robin's pride almost drove me mad with annoyance. Seriously. But as the book went on, I started to attach myself to him. Not Little John. I hate Little John. I only wish Robin Hood didn't die like that! It would have been cooler if he had been hung or something No? Okay then. Why didn't he kill the lady at the convent? Or let Little John do it for him? Was that some kind of stupid honor code? 'Cause if someone had detached my band aid


    22. For the first time I prefer the movie then the book. I felt like this could have easily been cut down as every chapter tells the same story about Robin Hood's adventures which pretty much ended the same way. In a way this was like a short story collection about Robin Hood and his merry men then a complete story with a beginning and end.



    23. Great book to read to sons and daughters! Very exciting and adventurous. Each chapter stands on its own, so it's a super book for night time reads!


    24. Dad bought this from the Folio Society. I stole it off him a few years ago and never gave it back. I am such a sucker for Robin stories.



    25. Who haven't heard the name of Robin Hood ?The myths and the characters were the bane of my childhood . The story will always be with me it's what made my imagination run wild as they say. Now into this book , it's a Retelling on the ballads and what has been collected however few about the honourable theives .Written back in the 1950s , the writing was easy to get into . Mr. Green has done a marvellous job of adding his bits into the story but keeping it faithful to the source material.I loved h [...]


    26. I really liked that this story is so much bigger then I ever knew. Robin Hood has forty or fifty men in the beginning and the story spans ten years of his life. He also has a lot more men then just the usual gang of merry men that could've been in more adaptations. I really didn't like the ending though. I feel like the last chapter took a very hard turn from the comedic adventures that were happening during the rest of the book. It was like the ending was an entire different genre.I think anyon [...]


    27. I finally got around to reading this, after seeing it mentioned so many other places! I can see why it's still a favorite. Lots of action and adventure and bad guys brought to justice! Apparently, the author had to cull these tales from a variety of sources, since there wasn't a definitive collection yet. The pixel art cover is sure to attract a whole new generation of readers!


    28. I really enjoyed reading about Robin and The Marry men, so much adventures and so much fighting xD. There were a few moments in the last 3-4 stories that were really hilarious. I even enjoyed Marian, given the fact that I dislike her from OUAT.
