By Virginia Lee Burton
Hardcover, 123 pages
Published by Houghton Mifflin Company © 1947
Through meticulous research, Anne Malcolmson rediscovered fifteen of the original ballads of Robin Hood; Grace Castagnetta adapted them to modern musical notation and Virginia Lee Burton spent three years creating drawings to accompany the songs, producing a masterpiece worthy of comparison to the greatest illuminated manuscripts of the medieval era. There is no better way to introduce young readers to the legend of Robin Hood.
