About the Author:

David Calcutt writes plays and poems as well as stories. Some of his plays have been broadcast on BBC Radio and some are published for use in schools, youth theaters and colleges. Before he wrote Robin Hood, he spent a long time researching medieval outlaws and their worlds, and walking in the forests near his home in Wolverhampton, England. This is his first project with Barefoot Books.

Grahame Baker-Smith won the Kate Greenaway prize in 2011 for his children's book, FArTHER. With a career now stretching back twenty years, Grahame continues to challenge himself in his work and incorporates digital techniques alongside traditional media. A father of three, Grahame lives with his family in Bath, England. This is his first project with Barefoot Books.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-6-When tricked by the Sheriff of Nottingham's men into killing one of the King's deer, Robin Hood takes on life as an outlaw, living under the shady green cover of Sherwood Forest. Armed with just a bow, arrows, his cunning wits, and the help of his band of followers, he overcomes his adversaries time and again in this episodic account of his adventures. Calcutt's writing is both lyrical and poetic, leaving readers with a sense of the idyllic atmosphere of life in the forest and the simplicity of days long ago. Each chapter highlights a few verses from the Ballads of Robin Hood, originally published in the19th century, which further accentuate the book's voice. Less impressive are the illustrations, which have a stiffness and inconsistency to details, leaving one with a sense that some pictures are more complete than others. Still, this volume is very readable and highly accessible to a young audience. For collections needing to update their classics, or those just looking for a new adaptation for both new and old fans of the merry outlaw, it's an ideal purchase.-Rebecca Gueorguiev, New York Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.
