The Boy, The Bear, The Baron, The Bard

by Gregory Rogers

Published by A Neal Porter Book / Roaring Brook Press, 2004
32 pages
ISBN: 1-59643-009-5


While attempting to retrieve his soccer ball, which broke through the window of an abandoned theater, a small boy is transported back to the time of Shakespeare, bursting on stage in the midst of one of the Bardís plays. His miscue annoys the playwright, who pursues him across Elizabethan London. The boy frees a caged bear and a captive baron while fleeing from the Bard in this raucous and exhilarating wordless story. The illustrations are a mix of comic-style panels and full-page drawings, all full-color. This dazzling graphic novel adventure sees relationships develop and lives change within 32 breathless pages.
