The Unlikely Outlaws (RA at level IA 7-9)
Join author Philip Ardagh as he uncovers the story of young knight-to-be Tom Dashwood and his band of outlaws. From the pages of a 'Medieval manuscript', he stitches together a hilarious tale. Follow Tom as he first encounters the outlaws, read about how they save the people from evil overlords, and set off on a wild goose chase of an adventure. A story within a story, this rollicking laugh-out-loud romp is sure to appeal to readers of all ages and is particularly suitable for 5-8s.
