The Black Arrow

by Robert Louis Stevenson is a GREAT book!
The main characters are:
Richard Shelton
Sir Daniel Brackley
Joanna Sedley
Sir Richard of Gloucester (Richard Crookback)
Sir Oliver Oates
Apparently, R.L. Stevenson had a good sense of humor; for while the book is rather violent in some places, it is very funny in others. At the end of the book Dick (and the reader,) have learned a few lessons.
It would make a REALLY GOOD read-aloud. My family and I listened to the seven (7) CD set in the car, and we all enjoyed every bit of it.
