Brother Hugo and the Bear

We rated this book:


There was a person that borrowed a library book. And this was all back in time in monasteries and the people were called monks. The monk could not return it, because a bear ate it! So he had to borrow another copy from another monastery and copy it, word by word, and picture by pictures, by hand. And this is something else: if they had printers at that time, they could have copied that book a lot of times. But they didn’t have printers, so he just wrote it all again. It took a long time and it took a lot of seasons and a lot of troubles, and he could survive all those troubles if it wasn’t for the snifflings of the bear!

I like this book because it’s fun and at the end, where the bear curls up around the person who cannot return the book that the bear ate, I like that bear because it was snuggling asleep around the monk’s legs and it was so cute. They had lots of details in the letters and in the pictures. They are like pictures that would be in the scriptures if there were any pictures in the scriptures.
