Robin Bailes's sequel to Robin Hood & His Merry Men, the classic pantomime which he wrote in collaboration with Jonathan Hales.
With their parents away at the Crusades Jack and Jill must rely on their uncle, Sir Guy of Gisbourne, to look after them, but Sir Guy is more interested in the kids' money. Protecting Jack and Jill from their wicked uncle and getting them home safely is obviously a job for a hero, but the only one local has not been seen for years. If they can find him, will Jack and Jill be able to persuade Robin Hood and his Merry Men to come out of retirement for one last adventure?
