Bought this to read with my 9 year old. I am an avid reader and have studied literature, but this prose is occasionally difficult to get through. I couldn't imagine him being able to read it himself, and he is pretty good. It is just about perfect for my use - we unschool, so as we get to terms, phrases, ideas, and historical info that isn't familiar, we delve into impromptu 'lessons' about the Crusades, Medieval times, caste systems, religion and politics' dance through history, and so on. I love the spattering of the original old English poetry and stories at the beginning of the chapters, and the sourcing is great. It is interesting and lively, fun to read, and spurs all sorts of creative activities, sparring, and other lessons. A great book for igniting creativity and building research skills off of. Depending on your child's ability to grasp words and ideas in loose context and reading level, might be good for older kids, definitely for teens, and great for adults.

Very happy with the layout of this book and the drawings every few pages. I was happy to purchase the unabridged version with pictures!! My eleven year old son had a very enjoyable read, and shared this book with friends.

Four hundred year old adventure stories thrilling as ever! My 9-yr old daughters and I enjoyed every page "because it was so exciting"! Our favorite part was when Maid Marian and the beautiful Bettris kicked major butt, with bows and arrows and a frypan, unaided by anybody all on their own.

I bought this book to read with my 7 year old, and I am pretty well pleased with it. The vocabulary is simple, the sentences are short (and often start with the word "and"; my grade school teachers would be appalled), but the tale is told effectively and accessibly for young readers.
Also, unlike some other books for young readers (e.g. the Droon series), this book does not simplify to the point of eliminating all of the descriptive passages. When Robin disguises himself as a musician, he wears "feathers of many colors" and carries a harp. There's not enough description to interfere with the pace for impatient children, but there is enough detail to hang your imagination off of.
As for the story, there were some frustrating omissions. The origin of Robin Hood is given only a few paragraphs in the introduction, and the tales of how Will Scarlet and Friar Tuck joined the band are missing. The book only tells how Little John joined. The rest just sort of show up later in the story. I'm sure that was done to keep the pace of the story moving, but it would have been good to have more of the stories written in this same style.
The rest of the story is a reasonably solid narration of the traditional tale of Robin Hood, with no more than the usual level of variation. I definitely recommend this book as a good way to introduce children to the story of Robin Hood, though I like the Dover Children's Thrift Classics edition slightly better.

This electronic version of the Puffin classic worked great for me to follow along with a class. Page numbering is exactly the same. And of course, the stories are wonderful. A unique aspect of this book is that each chapter can stand alone for class readings if you don't want to use the whole thing in a unit on the Medieval times and culture.

Excellent read, well written, very funny version, I've read a few, and no mention of bad King John, definitely the bad sheriff of Nottingham, and three excellent archers by play on names of famous people Ingle noted for her time. I recommend this book. Great read for children as well. Short to read for adult. Longer read for children depending on reading skills.

A wonderful classic and a pretty book to display on the shelf. My kids, 7 and 11, really enjoyed us reading this as a family.
While the story is fun and exciting, the sentence structure in the book is very disappointing. I recognize that it may be the author's style to add emphasis to ideas by writing them as stand-alone sentences, even if they are fragments. However, the children who are reading this book are usually also just learning how to write a good sentence; so the basic rule that a sentence should be a complete thought is more important in books for early readers than in books written for older audiences.
I was also frustrated because it would have been so easy for the author to write her thoughts in complete sentences. Many fragments could easily have been written as the second half of a compound sentence.
Some examples from page 6:
"The lad agreed. And he beat the man. Fair and square."
"But the man was angry. And embarrassed."
"Like most outlaws, he stole. But only from the rich."
