Based on the Paul Creswick telling of Robin Hood, and drawing from the rich and varied lore surrounding the beloved outlaw, this spirited reworking of Robin Hood's many adventures is a vibrant introduction to Friar Tuck, Little John, Maid Marian, the Sheriff of Nottingham, and, of course, Robin Hood, the hero whose generosity and sense of justice continue to intrigue readers today as much as they did eight hundred years ago. Original oil paintings by N. C. Wyeth capture the vitality of this classic tale.
Paul Creswick (1866-1947) is the author of numerous children’s books, most notably Robin Hood and His Adventures. His other works include In Ælfred’s Days, Under the Black Raven, Hasting the Pirate, and The Smugglers of Barnard’s Head.
N.C. Wyeth (1882–1945) began his artistic career as a young adult. Born in Needham, Massachusetts, Wyeth traveled the American West extensively and drew what he saw. His prolific career includes three thousand works and more than one hundred book illustrations, including those for a majority of the Scribner Illustrated Classics series.
