3.5 rating, so I rounded up. I was really surprised to see that this had no ratings. It really is quite an enjoyable book. It was the first that I had ever found that portrayed Marian as a strong character, vivacious and lively, strong and courageous. She was not just "Maid Marian" waiting to be rescued and fall in love, but instead she was a young girl whose best friend in all the world was her neighbor, Robin of Locksley, heir to a great estate. Her father was a magistrate and her mother, the...more

This is a fast-moving middle-grade book aimed at girls, though as an action story (with a young Robin Hood as a character) it could have cross-over appeal. The ending was well-plotted and satisfying, but much of the novel was uninspired, with the feel of a book in the middle of a long series. This novel has already been successful, so it has found its audience--I suspect they are drawn to the main character more than anything. Marian is quick and smart and fearless and loyal, which makes her att...more

A middle school level book aimed at giving girls someone to root for. Here, Marian is both the merry trickster character, grinning at the villains as she tricks them with word play and sleight of hand, as well as the heroine who rallies the people to save themselves and makes desperate last minute gambles to try and get everyone out alive.

I was actually surprised how high the stakes were raised in a book aimed at 10 year olds – one minute Marian’s playing fortune telling tricks, the next she’s o...more

3.5 stars.

I read this over and over as a 9/10 year old. I appreciated Marian taking action and not being the girl who sat around, waiting for Robin to come save her.

Marian's best friend is Robin of Locksley and, while he isn't a wuss, he certainly isn't as daring or inclined to go off "having adventures". They have a sweet friendship as I remember.

Cute,fun, enjoyable read.

This book is a good read for young girls as the heroine is a good example of how one can stand up for what is right.
If you enjoy this book you may want to next pick up one of the books in the Girls to the Rescue series.

My rating is maybe more like a 3.5, but I guess it was good enough to pull a four star out of me, but just barely.

Full review to come.

Very fun fast read. I thought it was a great story about Robin and Marian. Made me smile all the tricks they played. Cute story.
