The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them.

The story of Robin Hood—that legendary hero who robbed the rich to give to the poor—first became popular in the fourteenth century. But whether the character of Robin Hood ever really existed or was made up from a succession of dashing outlaw captains living some time between the Norman Conquest and the Wars of the Roses will never be known for sure. Whatever the origin of the myth, however, by 1350 ballads about Robin Hood and his Merry Men were being sung all over England, and men dressed as him, Little John, Friar Tuck and Will Scarlet performed plays about him, Maid Marion eventually being added to the group as Robin's fair companion, and Queen of the Greenwood.

Imaginatively retold by Carola Oman, with striking drawings by S. van Abbé, these much loved and dramatic stories about one of England's most romantic heroes will continue to fascinate young readers for generations to come.
