The Adventures of Robin Hood
This classic tale narrates the life of the infamous outlaw dedicated to fighting tyranny, Robin Hood. A literary masterpiece written over 600 years ago, the language of the original can be difficult to read, but not so with The Adventures of Robin Hood graphic novel by Usborne. Set in the reign of Richard the Lionheart, the exciting plot, eye-catching illustrations, and lively dialogue are sure to charm young, even reluctant readers. This 96-page graphic novel also includes maps and a well-researched article on the history of the legends of Robin Hood.

"It’s got great action, and I love how it familiarizes all the kids with the classic tale in such an accessible way.”Read the Review
My son read this over a few days. I had him read it in the car on the way to various errands. I thought it would be better to just let him read it in his free time instead of assigning a few pages a week and stretching it out over the year. He enjoyed it.
I love this take on the classic story. I know my son will enjoy reading this very much. Keep more books like this coming please.
My daughter loves the pictures, and the comic book formatting of this book. The adventures entertain her, and she's read it multiple times.
