Ivanhoe was first a historical novel by Sir Walter Scott, before inspiring the legend of Robin Hood and generating multiple adaptations. This complex, 3-volumes long novel has been retold and adapted for children by Sir Edward Sullivan, in what has now become a beloved old classic for kids. Set in 12th-century England, with colourful descriptions of medieval life and adventures, Ivanhoe is a realistic and vibrant story set in a kingdom torn asunder by the hatred between Saxons and Normans. Richard the Lion-Hearted is headed home from the Third Crusade to reclaim his throne. Amid the heat of a tournament, King Richard comes to the aid of another Crusader who has returned in disguise. Wilfred of Ivanhoe also seeks to recover a lost heritage — and the hand of Lady Rowena, “a rose of loveliness, and a jewel of wealth; the fairest among a thousand.”
