Synopsis

The Boy, the Bear, the Baron, the Bard by Gregory Rogers

What happens when a boy bursts through the curtain of a deserted theater and finds himself on the world's most famous stage? Follow Gregory Rogers's adventure through the streets of Shakespeare's London as a curious boy, a captive bear and a baron whose head is bound for the chopping block are chased by a very angry Bard! By the winner of the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal, The Boy, The Bear, the Baron and the Bard is available in paperback for the first time. This dramatic wordless tale of adventure and friendship proves that words don't always say everything.

Reviews

A splendid, wordless time-slip story with wonderfully detailed illustrations. It tells of a curious boy, a grumpy Shakespeare, a captive bear and a baron whose head is bound for the chop. Packed full of historical detail - the birds ib the heads on London Bridge are all too real. Gregory Rogers has created a glorious romp of a book. Carousel
