Hot Key Books, an imprint of Bonnier Books UK, is thrilled to announce a new four-book series from international bestseller Robert Muchamore, which catapults Robin Hood into the 2020s.

 Senior Commissioning Editor Felicity Alexander acquired world volume rights from Clare Pearson at Eddison Pearson Ltd.

 With breath-taking heists, genius hacking and corrupt business dealings, this is the start of a compelling and timely series for readers aged 10+ which will send a new generation of reluctant readers running for the bookshelves. 

 Since first appearing in twelfth-century folk tales, Robin Hood has featured in Shakespeare, DC Comics and countless screen adaptations. Now the legend returns, and like never before, as a much-needed hero of our times.

 Robert Muchamore said: ‘After two stand-alone books with Bonnier/Hot Key, I’m delighted to have them launch my first new series in six years. They are a publisher that is big enough to matter, yet small enough for an author to feel connected to the whole team.’

 Felicity Alexander said: ‘There is no one better than Robert at writing books that turn kids into readers. And now, with Robin Hood, he has created another absolute winner – the legendary British hero reimagined in the 2020s, along with a rich cast of accomplices, including Marion Maid, Freya Tuck, Little John and Will Scarlock. Robin and his friends have never been as cheeky – or as relevant.’


Book One, Hacking, Heists & Flaming Arrows, will publish in April 2020.
