    "The tale of Robin hood and the archetype of the noble thief is a classic and Howard Pyle's take on the character is great new telling while retaining the classic notes of the original. Iconic scenes like the staff fight between Little John and robin hood takes and others have all been included. It's excellent telling of Robin Hood for those looking for the classic tale."

    "This solution was extremely helpful. It told me why this was a fictional story, and how it related to Robin Hood. It painted a vivid picture and made me want to read it. It used strong descriptor words such as "war-hardened warriors" to really draw me in."

    "This is an awesome end to the King Raven trilogy. It did a good job of neatly tying up all of the story's loose ends, and it was just as enthralling as the first two books (which is rare). "

    "It seems that the book cannot be found on Amazon's page. it's just as well, because I wish I'd never found this book. If I could, I'd have the Sheriff of Nottingham arrest Robin Ho--um, McKinley for dreaming up this pile of nonsense. Someone should combine this story with the one about William Tell, only using this book in place of the apple."
