Review: The Snatchabook by Helen & Thomas Docherty

I got the chance and a copy of this adorable picture book, The Snatchabook. I must say that this is one of the best and cutest stories ever told about reading books and friendship. Eliza Brown, the reading bunny is on the case as to why suddenly the books have been disappearing over the last few nights. She suspects this little creature called a snatchabook. After speaking to the snatchabook, Eliza figures that he needs help and only wants to be read to. This is why he’s been taking all the books. In the end, Eliza and the snatchabook work together to get all the books back to everyone and a great friendship formed. Thomas Docherty’s illustrations are beautiful and seamlessly move the story forward. Thanks to Sourcebooks at BEA for such a wonderful read!

Where have all the bedtime stories gone? A delightful addition to the picture book canon about the love of reading

One dark, dark night in Burrow Down, a rabbit named Eliza Brown found a book and settled down…when a Snatchabook flew into town.

It’s bedtime in the woods of Burrow Down, and all the animals are ready for their bedtime story. But books are mysteriously disappearing. Eliza Brown decides to to stay awake and catch the book thief. It turns out to be a little creature called the Snatchabook who has no one to read him a bedtime story. All turns out well when the books are returned and the animals take turns reading bedtime stories to the Snatchabook.
