Description

The Band of Merry Kids is a rollicking middle-grade adventure set in the mythical Age of Robin Hood.

Pip is a 12-year-old boy who idolizes Robin Hood and bristles at the injustice he sees around him. He also considers his father a coward — a mere wool merchant who pales in comparison to Robin and his Merry Men. Pip and his two cousins accompany Pip’s father to a country fair. Pip makes some new friends — and fights some difficult battles — and it is here with his cousins and friends that he must face the greatest challenge of his life— saving an innocent family from the Sheriff’s dungeon. Along the way, Pip also learns a shocking secret about his father.
The Robin Hood legend provides the over-arching morality for The Band of Merry Kids, which explores classic topics such as good vs. evil, father-son relationships, loyalty, friendship and bravery in a great historical adventure.

Editorial Review

"David Skuy's characterization of Pip offers a gentle lesson in maturity for middle-grade-readers yearning for adventure ... The Band of Merry Kids is a pleasant, accessible book that offers a reassuring message wrapped around an action plot. It also provides a gateway into a broader literature about the medieval era in both fiction and non-fiction"
