A Phoenix Recording

Relive the adventures as Robin and his band -- Friar Tuck, Little John, Will Scarlet -- cavort about Sherwood Forest for the sheer joy and fun of it.

However, all is not sport. There is the Sheriff of Nottingham, a villain, who sees Robin as competition. He will stop at nothing to rid the forest of Robin Hood, and one is left asking: Who won this game, and how would it have been reported in today's press?

About the Author

Howard Pyle was born March 5, 1853 in Wilmington, Delaware. Pyle was a Quaker and attended the Friends' School in Wilmington. At sixteen he began three years of daily commutes to Philadelphia in order to study under the Belgian artist Van der Weilen. After three years of study, he set up a studio in Wilmington and helped his father in his leather business while beginning his fledgling career as an illustrator. His earliest work was published in Scribner's Monthly in 1876. He moved to New York, where he was associated to some extent with the Art Students' league of New York City during 1876-77. His early illustrations, short stories and poems appeared in the leading New York periodicals in 1876-79. He was also an artist and writer for Harpers Weekly. Pyle's color pictures appeared in issues of Century, Everybody's and Harpers monthly magazines from 1900 to 1911. Pyle devoted his art work almost entirely to the production of illustrations which appeared in periodicals and books. He also shared his views and skills with the student body at his 1896 classes at the Drexel Institute of Arts and Sciences in Philadelphia, his summer classes at Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and at his own school in Wilmington, Delaware - started in 1903. Pyle's students were to revolutionize the illustration world. Today they are collectively known as The Brandywine School. Pyle is the author and illustrator of the following works: The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood of Nottinghamshire published in 1883; Within the Capes published in 1885; Pepper and Salt, or Seasoning for Young Folk published in 1887; The Rose of Paradise also published in 1887; The Wonder Clock or Four and Twenty Marvelous Tales published in 1888; Otto of the Silver Hand also published in 1888; A Modern Aladdin published in 1891); Men of Iron, a Romance of Chivalry published in 1892; Jack Ballister's Fortune published in 1894; Twilight Land published in 1895; and The Garden Behind the Moon published in 1895. In 1910, Howard Pyle relocated his family to Florence, Italy where he hoped to study and pursue the painting of murals. It was his second trip abroad. On November 9 of 1911, he suddenly became ill and died of a kidney infection at the age of 58. His ashes were interred there.

My daughter loved this book. She chose it to do a book report and loved the book. This book kept her interest where other books don't seem to do that. I recommend this book to kids 9-11 years old.

I liked the book The Adventures of Robin Hood Classic Starts, because Robin Hood steals from the rich and gives to the poor. It was exciting because there was a lot of sword fights and archery matches, and I like archery. The author did a good job writing it because there was no slow parts in the book and the book made you want to keep reading it. The Adventures of Robin Hood, Classic Starts, is about Robin Hood shooting one of the sheriffs men, and is being forced to join forces with the outlaws of the Sherwood Forest. The sheriff and his men keep trying to capture Robin Hood, like the shooting match in Nottingham town. The winner of the competition gets a Gold arrow. The sheriff of Nottingham¿s town doesn't realize that he gave Robin Hood the gold arrow until they write a message to the sheriff. Robin Hood steals from the rich by inviting them to the big tree where they have a feast for them and then Robin Hood steals most of their money. Robin Hood also robs people that are passing through the middle of the Sherwood Forest. Robin Hood gives to the poor by buying the butchers meat cart and selling the meat for less than its worth or giving it to people who cant buy it or are old. Robin Hood and the other outlaws get in sword fights and usually win, until Robin Hood runs into Will Gamwell, Robin Hood¿s nephew. Will Gamwell hit a man who threatened his father and got charged with murder. The people that are part of the outlaws are Robin Hood, Little John, Will Gamwell, Arthur a Bald, and a few more. I learned that Robin Hood is an outlaw because he shot one of the sheriffs of Nottingham Town¿s men. He is forced to go live with the outlaws of the Sherwood Forest or risk getting killed by the sheriff.

I actually bought this book for my son, but I did read it before I gave it to him. Not only did he enjoy it, I also enjoyed reading it myself.

Annie Richards knows there are a million things to look out for- bike accidents, food posining, chicken pox, typhiod fever, run away zoo animals, and posin oak. Thats why being careful is so important. Everyone keeps telling Annie not to worry so much, and that she's just fine. But they thought her brother Jared was fine to, and Jared died. It takes a new neighbor,who looks as plain as a box of toothpicks but has some surprising secrects of her own, to make Annie relize that her plans of being careful arent working as well as she hoped. And with a lot of help from thosse around her- a book about a pig too- Annie just may find a way to close her umbrella of sadness and step back into the sunshine.
