    1. Disclaimer: ARC read via Netgalley in exchange for a fair review. Illustrations were not included in the ARC, so I am not commenting on them.Crossposted on Booklikes Your child has just watched the Disney cartoon of Robin Hood and wants to know more? What do you do? You get this book. Osprey’s Robin Hood book contains a breakdown of the legend drawing not just on the famous book by Pyle but also on the ballads. The stories follow the well known tracts of Robin Hood. However, like the Troy boo [...]

    2. The illustrations are gorgeous, rich and detailed. The book does a good enough job of describing the various aspects of the Robin Hood legend, and it discusses why and how this particular myth continues to endure and take on new colours with time.

    3. One of my favourite books of the series yet: a grounded hero and crew, dealing with real problems that affected real people across the society of the time.

    4. I enjoy this series as it really is good about examining the legends and possible sources of the legends. Very well done.

    5. First off, I will discuss the illustrations. Nottinghamshire-based artist Peter Dennis contributes several original illustrations to the publication and they are memorable. They are full of colour and period details, vibrant and exciting and exactly the sort of pictures you would expect to find showcased in an Osprey book. These alone are worth the price of the book IF you love quality book illustration. In addition, many other photographs and artworks are presented ranging from book illustratio [...]

    6. Myths & Legends: Robin Hood by Neil Smith, Illustrated by Peter DennisPros: summarizes several stories, mentions scholarship about historical possibilities for Robin Hood’s identityCons: repetitious, Maid Marion’s origin story left outThis is another volume from Osprey’s Myths & Legends series. Like the others, it summarizes the stories involved as well as gives historical information on where the legends came from.This book is separated into the Legend of Robin Hood (the earliest [...]

    7. Disclaimer: Received from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Robin Hood is a telling of the myth, legend, and modern adaptations of the information historians have on Robin Hood. The text is well balanced with lovely pictures that fit what Neil Smith is writing about. While not a heavy read on information about Robin Hood it is a good start for someone who has no solid background information on the possibilities of who Robin Hood could really be. The information was presented in an easy to [...]

    8. Robin Hood by Neil Smith is another great Osprey Publishing short intro title. This time around the origins of the Robin Hood stories are discussed. From the early ballads to the introduction of characters in the Romantic era that weren't part of the original ballads, like Friar Tuck and Maid Marian.These books pack a lot into a short 80 pages (that also include illustrations!). The first chapter goes through all the original ballads and tells their origin. The second section tells more about Ro [...]

    9. Disclaimer: Received from Netgalley in exchange for a fair review. This is a heavily illustrated overview of the Legend of Robin Hood. That is both the plus and the negative of this book.The text is clear and informative but also simplified. A bit of research on my part did uncover the fact that this book is part of a series marketed for teens and young adults. However, the text seems to be geared more toward upper elementary and middle school readers introducing them to a variety of myths and l [...]

    10. Title: Robin HoodAuthor: Neil SmithPublisher: Ofsprey Publishing , LiitedPublished: 1-21-2014ISBN-13: 9781472801272 E-Book ASIN: Pages: 80Genre: FictictionTags: Myths and LegendsOverall Rating: Most have heard the story of Robin Hood, but have you heard the real story behind the legend. The legend that was made into books and movies was based on the life of a real man. Not of the peerage, but rather a yeoman. Odes, ballads and folk lore abound to tell the tales of Robin Hood and Neil Smith has c [...]

    11. When I saw the title and the characteristic Osprey-style illustration for this book, I immediately went on to read it. Like many people, I am a big fan of the illustrations in Osprey books, so Robin Hood by Neil Smith was irresistible.Robin Hood is not your typical fictionalised account of the world's favourite outlaw, nor is it a history textbook. This book is a bit a mixture of the two, and great for kids who want to learn about Robin and his exploits without resorting to thick (and boring) te [...]

    12. What I didn't like: the included tales of Robin Hood were short, watered-down, and too simplistic. There are much better adaptations of the stories out there! Also, sometimes the illustrations didn't match up with the current story (for example, there was a picture of Robin fighting Friar Tuck that came many pages after that story took place! However, I did read an advanced copy through NetGalley, so perhaps some of the pictures got moved appropriately before publication). What I did like: The i [...]

    13. Robin Hood is one of the generally excellent series of MYTHS AND LEGENDS by Osprey Publishing, this one written by Neil Smith. It follows the same general format as the others, with a brief intro, retellings of the stories, examination of historical background to the stories and the setting, a brief look at the legend in modern multi-media retellings, all while interspersing throughout some sidebars to fill in some non-essential but often quite helpful and interesting information. Finally, the s [...]

    15. Robin Hood is one of the generally excellent series of MYTHS AND LEGENDS by Osprey Publishing, this one written by Neil Smith.

    16. Robin Hood has fascinated readers and audiences for years, many many years. Which brings the question who was Robin Hood? Where did the story come from? Why are there so many different versions? Neil Smith has done a great job of presenting the myth and legend. Smith's adapatations and retellings of the different adventures are very readable and filled with information about when and where different stories and characters appeared. 4/5 stars

    17. Set in the same manner as the Essential Histories this book explores the myth and legend of Robin Hood. Looking at each of the stories normally featuring Robin Hood and looking at his Merry Men, Maid Marian and the introduction of a Saracen by the BBC, this has a lot of organised information about Hood.

    18. Robin hoodby Neil smith A research ideal of the the legend and the story of Robin hood, looking at the number of inspired interpretation. From the story line of the legend, from its first writing, and those theorized that they were Robin hood. Looking at the Movies, and modern legends. But also each of the people involved with the story. Great pictures and details.

    19. Barely ok-ish retelling of Robin Hood with some background information. It's solid, but the style in which the actual storytelling happens is not very evocative and borders on boring (which is a almost a crime, considering that the legends of Robin Hood and his Merry Men have kept people entertained for centuries). Epub formatting is dreadful.

    20. ***This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review***This book looks so interesting, but the copy I downloaded is so poorly edited I am unable to read it. The pages are in the wrong order, whole sentences are missing, and then sometimes show up ten pages later in the middle of a different sentence. It's not worth the trouble of trying to decipher it.

    21. Part of the Osprey Myths & Legends series.Takes a look at the stories behind Robin Hood, explores who he may have been, and looks at the different film and TV versions that have appeared.Well illustrated by Peter Dennis.

    22. A YA introduction to Robin Hood. Most of the book attempts to separate fact from legend. It includes some nice illustrations as well. This work is a good starting point for young adults. Net Galley Feedback
