44 posts | 41 read | 1 reading | 9 to read
The masterpiece of children's literature--and Howard Pyle's finest creation--now in a beautiful new edition. The beloved adventures of Robin Hood come vividly to life in this wonderful illustrated version by renowned storyteller Howard Pyle. Deep in Sherwood Forest, the legendary Robin Hood--the brave, good-humored outlaw the whole world loves--proves himself the best in England with his bow. Here are all the exciting tales of how Little John, Will Scarlet, Allan a Dale, and Friar Tuck joined his merry band of men . . . Robin Hood's breathtaking escapes from his archenemy, the Sheriff of Nottingham . . . and one hilarious escapade after another filled with quick action, scheming villains, and great surprises. Days of old bursting with pageantry, knights, and beautiful maidens return in a superb edition of this favorite classic story.

The beginning was very repetitive but in the end it picked up.

I remember liking this children‘s story. The adventures of the famous outlaw who lived in Sherwood #Forest near the town of Nottingham, who stole from the rich to give to the poor.

I was exploring a flea market and stumbled upon this lovely find ❤️ it's copyright is 1955. Not the oldest book I've come across but I've been searching for a Robin Hood for a while.

You mean to tell me that the whole Maid Marian love interest sub plot in like every Robin Hood movie ever comes from the one (1) time she was mentioned in the prologue??? #robinhood #maidmarian #themerryadventures #howardpyle

My choice for a classic for #agameoffavorites is a double choice, my mother had a gorgeous copy of both the tagged book and Howard Pyles “King Arthur”. I was OBSESSED with the illustrations and read both books over and over.
My interesting fact about Pyle: he also wrote and illustrated a book about Pirates, and he is credited for basically inventing the “pirate costume” we know today. @ErinSueG #robinhood #kingarthur #pirates

This is an illustration from a vintage copy of Robin Hood that I pored over as a kid. I loved medieval European clothes but unfortunately, this book has far more male characters than female, so I think I memorized every dress depicted 😂 Thanks for the giveaway opportunity @GondorGirl ! #GG40k #illustrations #classics

1. David Tennant
2. Red if I‘m forced to choose, but I love so many
3. The tagged book
4. Mister Fantastic, to science the s§!+ out of the mission (and Mark Watney shouldn‘t have to go back). Samwise Gamgee, because caretaker/peacemaker/grunt/idealist. And Kaywinnet Lee "Kaylee" Frye for balance, mechanical skill and cheerfulness. Ask me again tomorrow and I‘ll come up with a different group though.
5. I‘ll try

PirateJenny The Errol Flynn movie was based on this book, which was adapted from medieval ballads. True story. I didn't know there was an edition with a Stephen Knight intro! I'm slipping. 2y

Robin Hood and his Merry Men obviously. And from the Pyle version because even though it was for children, it was also adapted directly from the medieval ballads. These guys were badass. #bookstotherescue @ValkyrieAndHerBooks

ValkyrieAndHerBooks Nothing wrong with a classic choice! And I bet they'd have some fun along the way! 2y
PirateJenny @ValkyrieAndHerBooks Exactly! And they would do it with style. 😊 2y

These are a few of the books I've owned longest. I think these were technically published in the early 80s but I can't remember when I actually got them as a child. I just remember thinking I was so grown up reading these in elementary school. 😂 #riotgrams

Read4life I loved and adored these as well! 🤓💙 2y

#RiotGrams My favorite children's book was Robin Hood. I read it over and over. Black Beauty was a close second. The pic is of my favorite children!

I really struggled with this book but that was mainly down to the language, I should have read a more recent edition as old English is tough. I'm glad I read it though as I've never seen the film.

#faveclassics as a kid I was entranced by the Howard Pyle version; that's a Pyle illustration on the left w/King Henry and Queen Eleanor (of Aquitaine). Later got a version illustrated by Louis Rhead (his Queen Eleanor on right). I still revisit Robin Hood, and even love the Disney version! Funnily, many years later my family found out we're descended from Henry/Eleanor and their son King John. @RealLifeReading @TheSpinecrackersBookClub
