Paperback Castles

I live on a page in a book. My name is written in a curly and swirly font, along with long descriptions of sleepless nights and filled bookcases.

The Adventures of Robin Hood - Richard Green, John Boyne, Roger Lancelyn Green, Arthur Hall "The Adventures of Robin Hood" is Green's attempt to gather and organize all the legends and myths of Robin Hood in one complete storyline. Of course the chapters are very episodic and fragmental as a consequence of the original material, but Green manages fairly good. There's a great sense of continuity present in this book.

The story itself is very repetitive, but the characters are fairly agreeable and well represented. Especially Lady Marian who turned out to be a lot more than the average "damsel in distress" stereotype. She is clearly capable of protecting herself, and is almost equal to Robin Hood himself in her use of bow and arrow. That came as a pleasant surprise for me.

I am sure that this book will be a true treasure to any adventurous child. I can only wish I had read it sooner myself.
