About this title

Synopsis:

She has never met her father-the outlaw folks call Robin Hood. But with her mother murdered and no one to care for her, thirteen-year-old Rowan has no choice but to track him down. Disguised as a boy, she picks up a band of followers, including Lionel, the gentle giant, and Ettarde, the runaway princess. Together, this motley crew will have to stick together if they are to survive the perils of Sherwood Forest. But when Robin Hood himself finds his life in danger, can Rowan prove she is worthy of carrying on the family legend?

This adventurous book by award-winning author Nancy Springer opens a whole new chapter in Robin Hood lore.

Review:

Hurray for Rowan Hood, the girls' answer to swashbuckling Robin Hood! Rowan, a.k.a. Rosemary, is forced to disappear into the woods disguised as a boy after her mother, a woodwife with healing powers, is murdered by the local lord's henchmen. Ro's only option, other than "toiling in some lord's cabbage patch," is to find her fabled father, Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest. Along the way, this outlaw-in-training is joined by a motley crew of characters: a wolf-dog that catches arrows midflight, a giant of a boy with a spellbinding musical talent, and a runaway princess. Rowan finds Robin Hood and his merry men, but she soon discovers her troubles have only just begun.

Packed with magic, valiant warriors, nasty villains, and edge-of-your-seat adventure, this story is also a poignant search for identity and family. Rowan is a fierce female protagonist with a good head on her shoulders. Girls and boys of all ages would be proud to name her as their heroine. Award-winning author Nancy Springer (I Am Mordred: A Tale from Camelot and many others) tells a riveting tale. (Ages 11 and older) --Emilie Coulter
