A beloved legend of all time, Pyle's The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood tells the compelling tale of the brave, good-humored outlaw and his cohorts Friar Tuck, Little John, and Will Scarlet, as they cavort about Sherwood Forest.
However, it is not all sport. Robin Hood and his band must also outwit the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham, who will stop at nothing to rid the forest of the outlaw.
"You who so plod amid serious things that you feel it’s shame to give yourself up even for a few short moments to mirth and joyousness in this land of fancy...these pages are not for you." So begins David Case in the hilariously proper British accent for which he is famous. He is introducing the Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, Howard Pyle’s 1883 take on the playful archer, a legendary hero since the Middle Ages.
In this two-part audiobook, Pyle and Case regale the listener with all the familiar events and characters: the Sherrif of Nottingham, Friar Tuck, and, of course, Little John. Of additional interest, Pyle’s text is written in an "old English" dialect that is as delightful as it is entirely invented.
