In the days of Robin Hood, a young boy named Robin is journeying through Sherwood Forest when suddenly the company is surrounded by men in green. Deserted in the commotion by an unfaithful servant, Robin finds himself alone in the forest. After a miserable night, Robin is found by Little John. Robin is treated kindly by Robin Hood, Maid Marian and the Merry Men, but how long must he wait for his father, the Sheriff of Nottingham, to come to take him home?

"...Young Robin Hood had the boys laughing at Robin's antics by page two and asking for more of the story whenever I tried to move on to another activity.... Young Robin is a bit of a character himself, not unlike my active, adventuresome boys.... I would venture that boys of all ages will likely smile at the banter, adventure, and fun." ~ Jennifer, Fairfax, Virginia
