THE MERRY ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD

by | Read by Christopher Cazenove

Classics Family Listening • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1883

The tales of Robin Hood, his outlaw band, and their unique code of ethics were retold by Howard Pyle in 1883. Christopher Cazenove invests Pyle's stories with engaging voices, not just for the clever Robin and the nasty Sheriff of Nottingham, but also for minor characters such as Wat o'the Crabstaff. Cazenove keeps his voice just rough enough in singing the many ballads that punctuate the story. His narrative delivery has a gentle tone that contrasts well with the rough characters, reminding the listener that Robin Hood's story is the stuff of legend. There's lots of fighting, but the emphasis on Robin's cleverness and his code will make this production a family favorite. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2009]
