The Adventures of Robin Hood Rob Lloyd Jones
This is a new title in "Young Reading Series Two", based on the tales of England's most famous outlaw and part of the Usborne Reading Programme. It is aimed at children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories. The outlaw Robin hood is determined to stop the evil Sheriff of Nottingham from bribing his way to becoming King. He sets out to steal the Sheriff's treasure - by winning an archery competition and becoming one the Sheriff's chief guard. But when his gang are all captured, will Robin be able to save them from the hangman's noose? It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is Principal Lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.
