Review of "Muppet Robin Hood," by Ross Richie et. al.

 Review of

Muppet Robin Hood, by Ross Richie et. al. ISBN 9781934506790

Five out of five stars

Entertaining retelling of the Robin Hood story

 In this graphic novel, the Muppet characters assume the roles of the characters of the Robin Hood story and tell it in their own way. The overall plot is similar to that of the original story, but of course given that they are the Muppets, there is a great deal of poetic license taken.

 Kermit is of course Robin Hood and Miss Piggy is Maid Marion. The dialog is truly that of the Muppet characters, especially the attitude of Miss Piggy, yet the sense of the story is generally preserved. It is a fun and entertaining rendition of a classic story, one that children will love to read, further preserving the legend of the noble robber that takes from the rich and gives to the poor.
