Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Gregory Rogers is back with a new wordless adventure every bit as funny and inspired as The Boy, The Bear, The Baron, The Bard. Here the Bear returns as a soldier whose daydreams are interrupted by Shakespeare's fairy, Puck--the Boy in the previous book. Soon Bear finds himself hurtled into an enchanted world replete with treacherous doings, sinister plots and, of course, palace dungeons. Is Bear truly a swashbuckler? Will he ever escape?

Horn Book Review

(Primary, Intermediate) Fresh from his deliverance from the Tower of London, the caped, helmeted bear from The Boy, the Bear, the Baron, the Bard (rev. 11/04) drifts down the Thames. He finds himself in a forested Fairyland where he is dwarfed by the mushrooms and where a songbird can (and does) carry him to its nest for supper. In fairly short order, he is rescued by a little fairy boy, runs afoul of a sinister usurper to the throne of Fairyland, and is thrown with the boy into the dungeon, where they meet the King and Queen of Fairyland and their servants. Those who have read the previous outing will recognize its title characters (playing the parts of the fairy boy, the king, and the usurper), each outfitted this time with fairy wings. It's another grand, wordless romp through tunnels and palace, comic-strip sequences breathlessly advancing the action while larger spreads, often employing dazzling perspectives, pull back to allow the reader to appreciate the grandeur of Fairyland. The line-and-watercolor cartoons themselves milk the comedy for all it's worth, the mustachioed usurper fairly oily in his glee, the fairy cook wielding her rolling pin with vigor as the former prisoners rout the usurper and his minions.
