The Boy, The Bear, The Baron, The Bard by Gregory Rogers

This is a story without words. It therefore provoked a fair amount of discussion in our household which is a nice way to read a book when you have the time and energy. The author states that he is ‘endlessly fascinated by everything Elizabethan’ but I have to say all my son picked up about the era was the lack of dental hygiene.

It did however seem to spark a bit of interest in a writer called Shakespeare and I feel hopeful that this may serve as an initial introduction into that world. I also think it’s a book that can sit on the bookshelf for a few years to be dipped into now and then at different ages allowing different aspects of the story to be examined.

An interesting book – particularly for those parents out there who are interested in introducing their children to all things Shakespearian.
