A modern-day Robin Hood by a New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author!
Life isn't fair. But Robbie Forester and her friends want to change that by fighting injustice. When evil businessman Sheldon Gunn ends up killing Silas’s father, the Outlaws know it’s up to them to make him pay. With street smarts, Silas’s inventions, and a little help from a charm bracelet, these friends know they can take on Sheldon Gunn and win—at least, they hope so. If they can’t, they might end up just like Silas’s dad.
The Outlaws of Sherwood Street: Giving to the Poor is perfect for fans of young detectives like Nancy Drew, Enola Holmes, and Gilda Joyce.

A mysterious merry band
"The rumor going around is that a band of kids is mixed up in all this, kind of modern-day Robin Hoods."
A jolt when through me, made my knees go weak and stopped my breathing. My world shrank down to that narrow-eyed look outside and the wild panic inside. "Oh?" I said, my voice quite a bit higher than usual, up there in six-year-old range. I forced myself to breathe again, tried to get my voice back under control. "Really?" Really: the puniest response there was.
"That's the rumor." Did Dina's lips start curving up in that little smile? The nearest streetlight was out, so I couldn't be sure. "But if true, I'd have a sympathetic reaction, if you see what I mean."
"My coverage would be positive," Dina said. "Here's something you might not have realized—shown in the right light, those kids could be stars."
"Why not? Wasn't Robin Hood a star?"
