A selection of Robin’s Children’s books and where to buy them...
“Lead for you or gold for me, speak now, sharpish – what’ll it be?”
Co – written by Xanthe & Robin & illustrated by Sherry Robinson, this book of folktales, intended for children aged 7-11, has also gained a following amongst grown-ups. Who wouldn’t want to bump into Puck as they walk the downs near Lewes, or spy a centaur in the woods at Rye? Watch out for the phantom highwayman at Steyning, though.
Hare is faster than any other creature, but he’s growing older: hunted across the forest he shelters with the Wise Woman in her hut. She heals his wounds, bringing the rage of the foresters upon herself - until their leader desperately needs her.
Hare is a fable about what it means to be hunted, judged and marginalized and nevertheless to make the ultimate sacrifice for your persecutors. 9300 words. Seeking publication.
