Robin Hood

Written by Rob Lloyd Jones

Part of the 3.2 Young Reading Series Two (Blue) Series

Robin Hood Synopsis

This is a brand new addition to Usborne Young Reading Series 2 , which is aimed at children whose reading ability is beginning to grow, and helps build confidence and ability. Robin Hood, along with his band of Merry Men, robs from the rich to give to the poor. But when the cruel Sheriff of Nottingham threatens the throne of King Richard, can Robin save the kingdom and win the heart of the fair Maid Marian? It is evocatively illustrated by Alan Marks, who also illustrated the Young Reading titles Moonfleet and The Railway Children . It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.

Robin Hood Press Reviews

'Irresistible for children learning to read' - Child Education Plus; 'The Usborne Young Reading Program has a lovely selection of classic tales adapted for younger readers. Graded in seven levels, these have just enough stretch in them and yet are not too overwhelming' - The Irish Sunday Independent; 'Crack reading and make confident and enthusiastic readers with this fantastic reading programme. Seven steps take beginners from simply written folk stories told in 150 words through to lovers of classic and original stories and histories, biographies and classics told in 5,000 words. Colour-coded for ease of use, and presented in a beautiful hardback, every story is well-written and attractively illustrated in full colour by leading artists' - Julia Eccleshare
