Summary
Alive with vivid detail and exciting from start to finish, this beautiful graphic novel for younger readers is the perfect book to introduce children to the grand art of storytelling. It's a wonderful companion to The Boy The Bear the Baron the Bard and Midsummer Knight.Escaping from a gang of bullies, a Boy slips into a grand old gallery - the perfect hiding place, full of mystery and treasures. Enchanted by the magic of painting and befriended by a mischievous dog, the Boy ventures into the world of a famous Vermeer painting - and he and his new friend are transported to Little Street, Delft in seventeenth century Holland. But the streets of Delft are a dangerous place for a dog, and the Boy has to use every ounce of his ingenuity to rescue his canine mate from an untimely fate on the butcher's block.Young readers will enjoy spotting much-loved characters from the previous Boy Bear books in this triumph of visual storytelling.Praise for the Boy Bear books includes:'Rogers' joyful, intricate, funny illustrations reveal something new with each reading.' The Sunday Age'Clearly a picture does tell a thousand words! Rogers has found a most delightful way to engage children in the art and craft of storytelling. Highly recommended to keep young readers engrossed for hours.' 4 Stars Junior Bookseller and Publisher'The beauty of Rogers's books are in the minute detail of his illustrations, but also in the freedom his pictures give young minds to imagine and dream.'
