“Tell the sheriff, tell Sir Guy of Gisbourne, tell everyone in Nottingham, that the Outlaws rule here in Sherwood, that we rule in the king’s name… I am Robin Hood.”

Homeless and lost in the dark forest, young Robin is rescued by a motley crew of misfits. He yearns to avenge his father and seek justice against his country’s cruel oppressors. Most of all, he wants to defeat the black-hearted Sheriff of Nottingham once and for all. And through his new friends, Robin finds the courage that will make him a legendary hero, remembered for all time… A vivid and passionate retelling of the Robin Hood story by the celebrated author of War Horse.
