The Outlaws of Sherwood

Our rating: *****

On his way to the fair Robin accidently kills a man, outlawing him. Robin’s friends convince him to hide in Sherwood forest and become a rallying point for the Saxons.

I really enjoyed Robin McKinley’s version of Robin Hood. I thought it was very interesting for Robin Hood not to be portrayed as a perfect shot with a bow. The characters seem much more lifelike in The Outlaws of Sherwood than in any other version of Robin Hood that I’ve read or had read to me.
