Description
(Caldecott Honor Book) In a style quite different from such familiar titles as Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and her Caldecott Medal Book The Little House, yet still unmistakably her own, Virginia Lee Burton provides the superb ink and scratchboard illustrations for this 1947 book, itself a Caldecott honoree. Burton's art, resembling finely detailed linoleum block prints, entwines and embellishes a collection of authentic verses and music about Robin Hood, many of them dating back to medieval centuries, resulting in one of the most distinctive presentations of the legend ever published.

"Fans of Sherwood Forest and admirers of the book arts will want to see Virginia Lee Burton's design and illustrations for Song of Robin Hood, edited by Anne Malcolmson, music arranged by Grace Castagnetta. First published in 1947 and now reissued, the Caldecott Honor–winning book contains 18 classic ballads of Robin Hood's deeds, set to traditional tunes and arranged with modern musical notations. Burton supplies a lapidary sequence of intricately detailed black-and-white vignettes, one for each stanza of the different ballads; her chapter openers and borders have the delicacy of scrimshaw carvings and the robustness of illuminated manuscripts."—Publishers Weekly
