  • "Brother Theophane isn't like the other monks. He can't help but stare out the window and daydream. Banished from the copying room for his playfulness and curiosity, Theophane discovers a way to make colorful inks that capture the glory of nature. Soon his simple, brown world becomes one of beauty--and books become works of art. Includes poetry penned by medieval monks, who scribbled verse in the margins of manuscripts. Back matter includes information about illuminated manuscripts and the monks who preserved knowledge during the Middle Ages."
  • "Winner of the 2011 Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award. In a monastery in the mountains of Mourne during the Middle Ages, one young monk struggled to focus on his task: copying the Bible and other scholarly books with plain brown ink made from wood bark in plain brown books in his plain brown robe at his plain brown desk. Brother Theophane was soon transferred from the scribe's room and assigned to make the ink that the brothers used. With his natural curiosity, Theophane discovered that inks could be made from other plants besides the wood bark. Berries and leaves produced other beautiful colors. And soon, the books the monks made were illuminated with colors and drawings. C.M. Millen's charming story of a young monk who defied the discipline of the monastery and found his own way to express the beauty of the world will inspire young readers to explore their own world and find their own voices. Andrea Wisnewski's illustrations, inspired by the illuminated letters that the medieval monks created in books like the Book of Kells, bring to life the colors and beauty that surrounded Brother Theophane amidst the plain world of the monastery."@en
