When his dad is framed for a robbery, Robin and his brother Little John are hounded out of Locksley and must learn to survive in the Sherwood forest, stretching three hundred kilometres and sheltering the free spirits and outlaws. But Robin is determined to do more than survive. Small, fast and deadly with a bow, he hatches a plan to join forces with Marion Maid, harness his inimitable tech skills and strike a blow against Gisborne and Sheriff Marjorie.
HERE’S MY REVIEW!
After reading Arctic Zoo, I feel very much intrigued to read any other books written by Robert Muchamore. There’s something different about his stories that fascinates me. I have a soft spot for reading about rebellious teenagers fighting corruption and nefarious adults. It shows that anyone is able to put corruption to an end, regardless of what age and status.
Robin Hood is a modern age story of Robin Hood, a 12 year old kid who has a knack for archery and computers. He lives with his older brother, Little John and father, Ardagh. However, when his father is framed for a robbery that he has not done, both of them are forced to survive away from town. That’s where all adventure starts.
I truly love reading about Robin and his adventure in dealing with his father being thrown into jail. His bravery and loyalty to his father is something that must be praised for. I respect Robin because even though he is only 12, he has formed a solid stand for what is right. Stand up for what you believe is right, even if you stand alone.
This is actually the first book to a four book series called Robin Hood, and the first book is called Hacking, Heists and Flaming Arrows. I genuinely thought that it is stand alone but after finishing Robin Hood, there are major plot points that are unsolved and for sure there will be a second book to explain it all. I surely didn’t expect a major plot twist to happen in the book and after that the direction of the story totally changes.
I look forward to more adventure and I cannot wait to see what Robin surprises us in the next book.
Thank you Pansing Books for sending me an ARC of Robin Hood!
