9781926606897: The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood

When Robin Hood became an outlaw, he decided to resist the authorities and aid his fellow man. Recruiting the help of Friar Tuck, Little John and Will Scarlet, Robin Hood fights to maintain justice until the return of King Richard the Lionheart. In the company of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, there is never a lack of action, adventure or for that matter - ale, as they outsmart the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham in Sherwood Forest. Written and illustrated by Howard Pyle, The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood solidified the image of a heroic outlaw who stole from the rich and gave to the poor. Having taken his material from old ballads, Pyle wove them into a cohesive story, in a colourful, invented old English idiom which preserves the flavour of the original ballads. The novel is responsible for turning Robin Hood into a staunch philanthropist, influencing writers, artists, and filmmakers ever since.

About the Author:

Howard Pyle was born on March 5, 1853 in Wilmington, Delaware. From the time he was a very small boy he loved pictures, especially the pictures in storybooks. Among his favorites were Grimm’s German Fairy Tales and Arabian Nights. At the age of twenty-one, Pyle began to contribute illustrations and fables to St. Nicholas magazine and later went on to write and illustrate books for children. His first was The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood in 1883. Many more books followed, including Pepper and Salt; or, Seasoning for Young Folk, Otto of the Silver Hand, Howard Pyle’s Book of Pirates, and The Story of King Arthur and His Knights. He also taught illustration at the Drexel Institute in Philadelphia and later set up his own art school in Wilmington. He died on November 9, 1911, in Florence, Italy.
