BBC Books 1991

After hours of painstaking research, the true story of what happened in Sherwood Forest has been uncovered. Maid Marian did all the work and Robin Hood tool all the credit. Robin was actually a terrific coward. It was Marian, a born leader ever since she was her school’s rounder’s captain, who managed to assemble a complete bunch of idiots to fight the evil ways of King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham.
A little known legend from Sherwood tells how Rabies tries to date Fergie, the strong and beautiful daughter of Sir Walter Ferguson. But the path of true love never does run smooth….in fact it runs straight into the Sheriff of Nottingham and his plot to marry off the terribly stupid Guy of Gisbourne…….
Tony Robinson, who plays the Sheriff of Nottingham in the BBC television series Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, now rips off his beard and wig in order to retell another wonderful old story in his own inimitable way.
