Publisher: Barrington Stoke
Mayhem in the Middle Ages! The Abbot of Canterbury has been set three very tricky puzzles by mean King John. The Abbot decides to visit Cambridge and Oxford to speak to the cleverest people in the land to get some help answering the questions but nobody there can help him. He returns home to find the shepherd who lives in the field next to the castle has some interesting answers.
Everyone knows that Robin Hood lived in the forest and that he stole from the rich and gave to the poor. You might not know that he also explored the oceans. Things do not start off by going exactly to plan when Robin Hood sets sail, he gets seasick and doesn't know anything about fishing. When some pirates come along Robin Hood is able to help in some unexpected ways.
