The Merry Men have never been merrier!
The classic tale of Robin Hood is turned on its head! Everything seems to be going well after Robin rescues Marian from the evil Sheriff. But Robin’s cousin Scarlet (who is desperate to join the Merry Men) finds a magical book – and the spells start flying! The Sheriff falls in love with the Dame, Little John turns into a bear, and Marian is set to marry the wrong man – it’s going to be harder than ever for Robin to save the day! And it doesn’t help that there’s a wild cow and mischevious fairies causing chaos in Sherwood Forest!
