Robin Hood All at Sea by Jan Mark
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 9+ Reading Age 7+. The classic story of Robin Hood and his Merry Men is given a new twist in this witty story told in words and pictures. Robin Hood is sick of his way of life robbing the rich to give to the poor. Wanting to do something different, he decides to be a fisherman. How Robin deals with the difficulties of life afloat is hilarious and Tony Ross’s illustrations capture his maritime difficulties of seasickness and pirates brilliantly.
