About the Author:

Howard Pyle was a successful American author and illustrator, many of whose books are aimed at younger readers. After only a few formal lessons in artistic techniques, Pyle initially began his career creating illustrations for magazines, finally publishing his first work in Harper s Weekly at the age of twenty-five. Pyle s career took off, and he was soon creating his own stories and publishing illustrated books for children. His most famous work is The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, which was the first cohesive retelling of the medieval legend of Robin Hood. His other famous works include Men of Iron, a tale about knighthood, and a four-volume collection about King Arthur. Howard Pyle died in Florence in 1911 at the age of fifty-eight.

Review:

"Pyle was one of the late nineteenth-century writers who helped invent the fairy tale novel, and it is thrilling to have this wonderful and moving book back in print."--Jane Yolen

"Magical, wistful, lyrical-a different face to the writer who introduced me and thousands of others to heroic adventure. Not to be missed!"--Tamora Pierce
