Publisher Comments:

Classic children's stories are brought to new life in Sterling Publishing's new Classic Starts series, featuring retellings based on the original manuscripts, and new black-and-white illustrations. Here, the "gentleman bandit" Robin Hood and his band of "Merry Men" embark on their adventures.

He robbed from the rich and gave to the poor, and had escapades enough to please any adventure-loving child. Now even the youngest readers can have the chance to enter Sherwood Forest with Robin's band of merry men, and meet such unforgettable characters as Friar Tuck, Little John, Allan-a-Dale, the nasty Sheriff of Nottingham, and wicked King John. Every moment of the story is filled with action and excitement.

Synopsis:

Following Sterling's spectacularly successful launch of its children's classic novels (240,000 books in print to date),comes a dazzling new series: Classic Starts. The stories are abridged; the quality is complete. Classic Starts treats the world's beloved tales (and children) with the respect they deserve--all at an incomparable price.

This book is a must have for any parent. My kids love the way the story just flows. They give it the best compliment, "It is better than the cartoon." This is with out a doubt the best version I have ever read.
