Robin Hood, Sherwood Forest, Miriam, Friar Tuck, Little John... fascinating! We had this big hardbound book with illustrations and I loved reading it again and again. The pictures were in intricate detail and I almost imagined life with the Merry Men, sleeping under the stars and eating off the land! Each time I reached the end of the book and Robin Hood died, I think I died too!

“Underneath this little stone
Lies Robert Earl of Huntington;
No other archer was so good -
And people called him Robin Hood.
Such outlaws as he and his men
Will England never see again.”
― Roger Lancelyn Green, The Adventures of Robin Hood
