Whether or not there was ever a real Robin Hood, the stories about him have been told over and over again for centuries. How outlaws rescued him from the evil Sheriff of Nottingham: how his true aim, his keen courage and his laughing eyes soon made him their leader: how Maid Marian joined them: how Robin fought with Little John on the bridge: how they robbed the rich to feed the poor and rescued innocent children from the gallows...generation after generation have thrilled to these legends of romance and adventure. Sarah Hayes has retold the tales with a classic simplicity and lively characterisation that brings new life not only to Robin but to his merry band of followers. Patrick Benson's illustrations give her retelling a dramatic power that cannot fail to win over a new generation of young enthusiasts.
