The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood of Great Renown in Nottinghamshire is an 1883 novel by the American illustrator and writer Howard Pyle. Consisting of a series of episodes in the story of the English outlaw Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men, the novel compiles traditional material into a coherent narrative in a colorful, invented "old English" idiom that preserves some flavor of the ballads, and adapts it for children. The novel is notable for taking the subject of Robin Hood, which had been increasingly popular through the 19th century, in a new direction that influenced later writers, artists, and filmmakers through the next century

Robin Hood is a lovable outlaw, who along with his band of Merry Men, become famous for their frequent escapades with friends and foes alike. He is constantly at odds with authority, specifically the Sheriff of Nottingham, who’s committed to making him pay for his crimes. After a clash with locals, Robin Hood becomes a wanted man evading the efforts the nefarious Sheriff of Nottingham. Despite many attempts, the infamous bandit manages to avoid capture and enlist multiple Merry Men, including Little John, Friar Tuck and Allan a Dale. Throughout his travels, Robin uses his superior archery skills to protect himself and others from potential threats. With his charm and wit, he navigates a series of challenges leading to the ultimate absolution. Pyle’s retelling enforces the narrative of an English outlaw who becomes a beloved hero. He refrains from early characterization that portrayed Robin Hood as a self-serving thief with few redeeming qualities. By having a moral compass, the author made him palatable to a broader audience, particularly children. The book was an overwhelming success and inspired multiple adaptions including television and feature films. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood is both modern and readable.

Against the fascinating tapestry of Frances history during the Hundred Years' War, Diane Stanley unfolds the story of the simple thirteen-year-old village girl who in Just a few years would lead France to independence from English rule, and thus become a symbol of France's national pride. It is a story of vision and bravery, fierce determination, and tragic martyrdom. Diane Stanley's extraordinary gift to present historical information in an accessible and child-friendly format has never been more impressive, nor her skillful, beautifully realized illustrations (here imitating medieval illuminated manuscripts) more exquisite.
