Hacking, Heists & Flaming Arrows


I saw a brilliant doco on Robin Hood in the lock down, it was figuring out what was fact and what was fiction. I was surprised by what i thought was truth but wasnt. It still is a really good yearn and these books keep fanning the fire of the myth, which is flipping brilliant!


A town. A forest. A hero.

You can't go far without a quick brain and some rule-bending in a place like Locksley. After its vast car plants shut down, the prosperous town has become a wasteland of empty homes, toxic land and families on the brink. And it doesn't help that the authorities are in the clutches of profit-obsessed Sheriff of Nottingham, in cahoots with underworld boss Guy Gisborne.

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 the Sheriff

"Robert Muchamore does it again with a thrilling read, packed with action, where kids outsmart adults with a winning combination of skill, cheekiness and luck.
In this first in the series, we have a modern setting for the Robin Hood legend. In this setting, Robin is a twelve year old boy who finds himself on the wrong side of the law because he refuses to let local bully boy Gisburne try and set up Robin’s father. He escapes into the forest where he is befriended by a local biker gang and the leader’s daughter Marion.
Though on the wanted list, Robin prepares to fight for justice for his father and do whatever he can to get revenge in Gisburne for his corrupt practices.
There’s no denying this is highly fantastic in approach, but it was good fun and I’m sure it’ll entertain many readers."- Karen
