Ladybird Classics: Robin Hood
A History of Robin Hood. Long ago, in the time of the Normans and the Saxons, there were very few books. Most people could not read and the tales they heard were sung to them by travelling minstrels. The hero of many of these stories was Robin Hood. Some of the tales about him appear in ancient manuscripts but, over the years, the stories have been changed and added to by many writers. Retold by Desmond Dunkerley.
