Brother Hugo and the Bear

Katy Beebe. illus. by S.D. Schindler. Eerdmans.

K-Gr 3–Responsible for replacing a library book devoured by a bear, a monk treks to a neighboring monastery to borrow a copy, readies sheepskin parchment and nutgall ink, and painstakingly handwrites the manuscript, stalked all the while by his still-hungry nemesis. An alchemy of vivacious narrative and fine-wrought illustration, steeped in history and illuminated with humor.
