Well Produced Series

The DK Read & Listen books and tapes are so well produced, I don't mind listening to the tape or reading the book over and over to my 5-year old. We liked the Robin Hood book so well, we also bought Oliver Twist. The tapes are great for the car.

Classic story, well told.

Like most people, I've heard the Robin Hood story many times. No real surprise there! What makes this rendition unique is Mr. Gruffudd's wonderful voice, the book that doubles as a resource, and, of course, the wonderful story of a man more determined to do what was "right" over what was "legal".Mr. Gruffudd just has a way with British accents. Robin's band of men apparently come from all over the UK - Cornwall, Irish, King's English accents (plus more that I couldn't easily identify) were used. And of course, Mr. Gruffudd's natural Welsh accent told the story.The book was great. Lots of pictures, lot of sidebars of information. From obsolete jargon to modern pictures of people in costume, these pages in the book help to explain a lot.The story, of course, is a classic. I would caution parents of sensitive children to consider editing the last chapter or so. Instead of ending the story with the "happily ever after" once Robin and Marian are married, this book follows Robin until his death at the hand of his cousin, who betrays him. All in all, it was highly enjoyable. A definite recommend!

A Jolly Good Time!

As a former elementary school librarian, I heartily recommend this audio book. It's beautifully read by Ioan Gruffudd (TV's Horatio Hornblower - more great audio books he's narrated!) and should be enjoyed by a wide range of listeners, even through high school-age students. The book is a Dorling Kindersley publication, so it's chock-full of visual information and provides outstanding explanations of medieval culture, terms, and expressions. The subject matter ties in with several topics, including folk tales, British culture, adventure, and history. The tape and book should encourage lively classroom discussions.I can visualize playing this audio book during classroom art time or as a reward. It could also be the inspiration for a classroom play. And, of course, it's a wonderful purchase for children or grandchildren for home enjoyment. Best of all, the price is quite reasonable and delivery couldn't be easier.

Great book!

This is just a wonderful book, the reader Ioan Gruffudd makes a magnifique job with the voices of the different characters. I recommend to buy this book to anyone who hasn't bought it yet, is a must have.

Robing Hood Tapes

I found this book tape an excellent work, the reader IoanGruffudd makes a great job with the change of voices, it makes you enjoy the reading. Recommend to anyone who hasn't read it yet. Won't be dissapointed!
