Robyn Hood: A Girl's Tale
…time to read!!!!!!!
With most schools winding down for the summer I thought it would be appropriate to recommend a great author of pre-teen/teen books to give your kids some good reading ideas. K.M. Shea is a witty and humorous writer who has put a twist on the traditional fairy tales. In Robyn Hood: A Girl’s Tale the classic story of Robin Hood is turned on its heals when we learn that Robin Hood is actually Robyn, a girls initially mistaken for a boy who keeps up the masquerade in order to pay King Richard’s ransom. (think Disney’s Mulan)
We follow the rest of the story in Fight for Freedom, where Robyn must decide what is truly important and what she is willing to fight for. Both stories do a great job of captivating the reader and are very age appropriate for young teens. This series is also a wonderful introduction to K.M. Shea and her many adaptions of fairy tales and historical characters like King Arthur, Puss in Boots, and Rumpelstiltskin in series like King Arthur and her Knights and Timeless Fairy Tales.
They will provide hours of great reading this summer.
These books, as well as many of K.M. Shea’s other works, are available for free with Kindle Unlimited. You can also learn more about her and her other works at kmshea.com or on Facebook and Twitter.
Tanya’s love for books has been a lifelong passion that she likes sharing with others. Reading is also the thing that relaxes her after a day of juggling the many responsibilities that come with being being wife to an amazing man, mother to four great kids spread around the world, business manager, and farm hand on their place in southwest Missouri; home to Akaushi cattle and a menagerie of pygmy goats, horses, chickens, dogs and cats.
