Midsummer Knight by Gregory Rogers


Midsummer Knight by Gregory Rogers

On a morning of midsummer magic the Bear discovers an enchanted world in the heart of the forest. But there is treachery at work and the Bear is swept up in a sinister plot that lands him in the palace dungeons. After masterminding a crafty escape he leads his new friends into a royal battle - but what hope do they have once swords are drawn? Midsummer Knight is a swashbuckling story of friendship and courage. An irresistible companion to Book 1 in the Boy Bear Series: The Boy, the Bear, the Baron, the Bard.


'Sometimes you don't need words to tell a story...Midsummer Knightis a swashbuckling story of friendship and courage. An irresistible companion to the internationally acclaimed wordless picture book,The Boy, the Bear, the Baron, the Bard.'

'Here's a splendid children's book which not only tells a clear story through engaging pictures, but encourages the reader to create their own dialogue, details and subplots...illustrations are humorous, busy, detailed and a joy to follow.'Advocate, 30 Sept 2006'
