Brother Hugo and the Bear

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. When a hungry bear devours the precious book, Hugo must craft a new copy. It turns out, though, that once a bear has a taste of letters, he’s rarely satisfied. This humorous tale provides a light-hearted introduction to the historical process of bookmaking, and is sure to delight readers who have acquired their own taste for books.
