Kindergarten-Grade 3?A simplified retelling of Robin Hood's meeting with John Little. Cohen covers the familiar plot of the giant knocking Robin Hood in the stream, Robin splitting the giant's arrow, and the "christening" of John Little as Little John. Told in a direct manner, the narrative has enough lively dialogue to add zest and plenty of action. Ray's full-page stylized illustrations are done in rich, almost burnished shades of forest green, gold, and brown. Characters and scenery have an appealing, sculpted, 3-D effect. The title appears on the back cover while a dramatic full-page cover image of Robin drawing his bow pulls readers into the story. Though excellent for individual reading, the book's large size and open format make it also appropriate for group sharing. This easy version of a well-known tale of friendship will be a surefire hit in most libraries.?Judith L. Miller, formerly at Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library, IN

Gr. 1^-4. The title and author being relegated to the back of the dust jacket, the powerfully drawn Robin Hood tautly pulling back on his bow and eyeing his target snares readers' attention from the jacket front. Once inside the book, readers are rewarded by Cohen's colorful retelling of the legend in which the notorious outlaw meets his right-hand man, Little John. The struggle between Robin Hood and the giant stranger, Robin's good-natured defeat, and the mutual respect that blossoms from that first confrontation are excitingly conveyed in flowing prose, while Ray's distinctive art reflects the strength--both the character and the physical prowess--of the legendary figures. The illustrations are lush with the textures and colors of Sherwood Forest, to which readers are transported in this beguiling version of a long-loved tale. A source note precedes the telling.
