Robin Hood is the leader of his gang, the Underthieves. They get orders from Grandma of what things to steal and then they take turns wearing the girly red hood to deliver the goods to her. This time, it’s Robin’s turn to wear the hood and he’s none too happy about it, but does it anyway. What should be a piece of cake delivery turns out to be anything but.

Not terribly well-written, but not awful either. A cute, quick, middle grade fairy tale retelling that has a bit of a twist there toward the end. Melding Robin Hood with Little Red Riding Hood is clever and the twist is a surprise. I would read more of this series.


  1. That's an interesting combination! I may have to check this out for the kids.

    1. I like stories that throw a bit of this and that in a pot and stir. Kids would probably enjoy it. :)
