The Snatchabook (Helen Docherty & Thomas Docherty)

Hello, everyone! Today, we read The Snatchabook by Helen Docherty & Thomas Docherty, the sweet story of a town’s mysterious disappearing stories and the power of reading together.

One night in Burrow Down, after all the bedtime stories have been read, the books start disappearing – first a few at a time, then whole shelves of books at once! A bunny named Eliza Brown is determined to catch the culprit, so she sets a trap to discover who it might be. Lo and behold, she discovers the book theif, but finds that the creature, a Snatchabook, and his motives are not at all what she expects!

This was a fantastic story about one of our favorite subjects: the importance of reading together! The animal characters, especially the brave, book-loving Eliza are fantastic, the rhyming text flows well and is enjoyable to read, and the moral lesson and resolution are just lovely. The illustrations are very cute, and the length is fine for little readers. We really enjoyed this one, and we bet that you will too. Baby Bookworm approved!
