I realized something that borders on the astonishing. Even though I love the story of Robin Hood, and own three different movies about the character (Disney’s Robin Hood, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and the newest Robin Hood movie with Cate Blanchett & Russell Crowe), I’ve only ever read one thing where the characters and story are portrayed.
So, this week, I started investigating different books based on the Robin Hood legend.
- The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle. Originally Published 1883. LT
- The Adventures of Robin Hood by Roger Lancelyn Green. Originally Published 1956. LT
- The Youngest Templar trilogy by Michael P. Spradlin. LT
- The Outlaws of Sherwood by Robin McKinley. Originally Published 1988. LT
- King Raven Triloy by Stephen R. Lawhead. LT
- Maid Marian by Elsa Watson. Originally Published 2001. LT
- The Forestwife trilogy by Theresa Tomlinson. LT
- Rowan Hood series by Nancy Springer. LT
- Locksley by Nicholas Chase. LT
- Robin the Hoodie by Hans Christian Asbosen. Originally Published 2011. LT
What books should I be reading that have Robin Hood in them?
