The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood with Otherby Howard Pyle
Synopses & Reviews
In Merry England, in the time of old when good King Henry the Second ruled the land, there lived within the green glades of Sherwood Forest near Nottingham Town a famous outlaw whose name was Robin Hood. No archer ever lived that could speed a gray goose shaft with such skill and cunning as his, nor were there ever such yeomen as the sevenscore merry men that roamed with him through the greenwood shades.
He stole from the rich and gave to the poor, and in so doing became an undying symbol of virtue. But most important, Robin Hood and his band of merry men offer young audiences more than enough adventure and thrills to keep them listening intently. Filled with action, villains, and surprises, who could resist the arrows flying, danger lurking, and medieval intrigue?
Here are the beloved adventures of the mischievous hero Robin Hood and his brave and merry band of outlaws who forged a chivalrous code to protect the oppressed and despoil the oppressors.
Howard Pyle tells the gripping adventures of the brave, good-humored outlaw Robin Hood and his cohorts Friar Tuck, Little John, and Will Scarlet as they outsmart the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham in Sherwood Forest.
About the Author
Howard Pyle (1853-1911) was a celebrated artist, author, and teacher — and a primary figure in the history of children's literature. Not only did he guide and inspire such artistic talents as N. C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, and Jessie Willcox Smith, but he was also a master storyteller in his own right. "The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, Pepper and Salt, " and "The Wonder Clock" are among the many stories and folktales that he wrote and illustrated.
David Case is the founder and current president of Live Free Ministries, a ministry dedicated to restoring kingdom power and authority to spiritual leadership. Since the early 1990s, David Case has held retreats for both pastors and lay persons, helping them break through bondages and pointing them toward fulfilling the call of God on their lives. Having pastored the same church for eighteen years, Pastor Case gives other pastors the tools they need to implement the lifegiver model into a whole-church setting. Case also co-hosts a radio program and ministers internationally. It is David Case's heart to blend "the supernatural of the spiritual realm" with a very solid application into the natural realm.
