Three fantastic, fun-filled, dynamic and dramatic stories, to follow on from the story of Jason and the Argonauts and Ali Baba, published in February. These are tales that every aspiring boy-adventurer will want to read, from Robin outwitting the evil sheriff and William Tell's astounding shot that pierced an apple at one hundred yards, to Aladdin's discovery of his very own magic lamp complete with genie. Illustrated throughout with Tony Ross's energetic, bold and brilliant line drawings.
