Synopsis

Brother Hugo and the Bear by Katy Beebe

Brother Hugo needs to return a very important library book -- another monastery's copy of St. Augustine. But along the way, a hungry bear devours the precious book, and the Abbot tasks Hugo with replacing it. Letter by letter and line by line, the hapless monk crafts a new book and sets off to return it. It turns out, though, that once a bear has a taste of letters, he's rarely satisfied. With a hungry bear close on his heels, will Brother Hugo ever make it back with his fine parchment in one piece? Lavishly illustrated by S.D. Schindler, Brother Hugo and the Bear is loosely based on a note found in a twelfth-century manuscript -- and largely on the creative imaginings of the author. This humorous tale is sure to delight readers who have acquired their own taste for books.
