Brother Hugo needs to return a very important library Books—another monastery’s copy of St. Augustine. But along the way, a hungry bear devours the precious Books, and the Abbot tasks Hugo with replacing it. Letter by letter and line by line the hapless monk crafts a new Books and sets off to return it. It turns out, though, that once a bear has a taste of letters, he’s rarely satisfied. With a hungry bear close on his heels, will Brother Hugo ever make it back with his fine parchment in one piece?
