Based on the Book

One of my favorite stories is hitting theaters yet again this coming Friday. The story of Robin Hood, most recently starring Russell Crowe, has been made into a number of movies over the years, a few of which we have available for checkout. We also have many books that retell the age old story of Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men. Below are just a few of the available titles concerning Robin Hood. Click on the titles for more information.
