Everyone knows the stories of Robin Hood and King Arthur.
Everyone knows they’re just legends.
But what if everyone is wrong?
While Sam, Henry and Arthur think they’re going to spend their summer holiday with Uncle Alan, their adventurous relative has other plans. The silver arrow has gone missing, and Robin has been kidnapped.
The race is on to find the arrow and rescue Robin, before others beat them to it. Who can be trusted? One wrong move and disaster is sure to follow! (For ages 8-13).
A former teacher, Hetty has always been passionate about children reading. She is also fascinated by the legends of the British Isles. So, when her son asked her to write a story about him having an adventure with Robin Hood, she was delighted.
The story was originally self-published as The Forest Children and given to friends and family. After publishing her first book for adults in January 2022, she decided to re-write the story properly and turn it into a series.
As R.E. Loten, she writes books for adults, is Writer In Residence at Brightlingsea Lido and is a co-founder and editor of the online magazine Makarelle.
