Robin Hood (DK Eyewitness Classics)
Synopses & Reviews
A new series of classic literature for today's visual generation. No other outlaw in history or literature is as famous as Robin Hood. People everywhere love this colorful hero and his band of merry men, who robbed the rich to give to the poor. Tales of Robin Hood's daring exploits have passed from generation to generation in poetry and song, and recently on movie and television screens. Neil Philip's telling of the Robin Hood tales is based on the medieval ballads that first described this hero's escapades. Nick Harris's narrative illustrations bring the adventures to life. Historical characters and settings are explained through photographs, paintings, and hundreds of facts about medieval monarchs and churchmen, archers and Crusaders, and the great royal forest of Sherwood. Robin's brave deeds and their fascinating context are brought together to inspire a new generation.
Brilliant illustrations and photographs bring these classics to life — guaranteed to capture the attention of any child.
