When 15-year-old Robin Hood is declared an outlaw after he is tricked into shooting one of the king's deer, he flees into Sherwood Forest to join the robbers and homeless folk who live there. The classic story of Robin Hood is freshly told with great gusto and high humor and illustrated with action-packed pictures.

Grade 4-5?This solid retelling is accessible to younger readers, presenting seven basic stories without losing significant details. Curry does not include any version of Robin's death, or of King Richard's return and the end of the outlawry. Gray-and-black wash illustrations are not colorful, but do have an adventurous ambiance that goes well with the text. This version is for a slightly younger audience than Sarah Haynes's Robin Hood (Holt, 1989), and has a more inviting format.?JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA

Gr. 3-5. Curry provides a short, fluid retelling of the Robin Hood legends based on a fifteenth-century poem. There are tales about Robin becoming an outlaw; Little John joining the band; the Merry Men entertaining the Sheriff of Nottingham; and Robin helping Sir Richard repay a greedy abbot's loan. Thirteen nicely executed ink-and-wash drawings illustrate the book. Short and simple enough for children new to chapter books, this episodic volume will reward readers with its appealing subject, attractive design, and well-told tales. Carolyn Phelan
