Me and the Robbersons is a fresh and fun story about what it really means to escape.

A madcap adventure starring a bandit family, a lot of sweets and a girl who is ready for adventure ... Maisie is convinced her summer holiday is going to be as boring as ever – until a bungled raid on her family’s car sees her snatched by the Robbersons, a bunch of bandits with an insatiable appetite for sweets! Soon Maisie realises that life on the open road with the Robbersons is the adventure she’s always longed for. They’ve even started to see her as one of the gang! So when she discovers that the police and her parents are hot on their trail, Maisie decides she isn’t quite ready to be rescued…

'Narrator Emmanuelle Mattana zestfully introduces a bandit family aptly named Robberson as they kidnap 10-year-old Maisie on her way to her grandmother's house. Listeners experience a rollicking time as the family and their trainee, Maisie, cross Finland, stealing what they need – particularly sweets. Maisie comes to enjoy the family, which is quite unlike her own. Mattana's best creations are the dad, Wild Karl, who's bossy yet kindhearted, and adorable 10-year-old Charlie, who desperately wants to attend school. Mouthwatering food, such as crispbread piled with meatballs and mustard, and colorful scenes of the magnificent outdoors are appealingly described. The high drama of the robberies and the chaos of the Bandits' Summer Shindig are balanced by the smile that's usually present in Mattana's voice.'
