Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen is not a new story. It is the telling of Robin Hood, but with a twist. Will Scarlet is not the character that you expect. Because, Will is a girl. She has been running the streets and posing as a boy as she hides among the thieves of Nottingham. This is a creative and exciting telling of Robin Hood from the viewpoint of Will Scarlet.
Now, transport yourself to the present, and what was old is new again. The Forest Queen by Betsy Cornwell is a fresh retelling of Robin Hood. This story follows Silvie, whose brother is the new Sheriff of Woodshire, as she runs away from his cruelty and joins up with others to create a community and family of her own.
