Description

Even dragons love a good story...

Leo was a gentle knight
in thought and word and deed.
While other knights liked fighting,
Leo liked to sit and read...

When Leo's mom and dad pack him off to fight a dragon, he takes a shield, a sword--and a pile of his favorite books.

But can a story be as mighty as a sword?

Praise for The Snatchabook:
#1 Indie Next Pick
"I dare you to try to read The Snatch-a-book silently to yourself. You can't do it. The book is so wonderful it demands to be read out loud. And besides, if you didn't read the book out loud, how would the Snatch-a-book hear it?"--Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick

"This ever-so-sweet story begs to be read out loud." --Booklist

" The gorgeous illustrations are a perfect match for the lively text. This book is a fabulous fit for both storytime and one-on-one reading. Children will be begging for this book to be read to them every night-clever ones will claim they want to keep the Snatchabook happy." --School Library Journal

"The husband-and-wife team of the Dochertys have a winner in this heartwarming tribute to the essential role of bedtime reading in the lives of families." --Publishers Weekly

"The story is sweet and the illustrations darling." --Kirkus

"This whodunit with an uplifting ending will appeal to fans of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! . . . [it] celebrates bedtime reading as a ritual to be revered, and features a thief who merely wants to share in the fun." --Shelf Awareness Pro

"The last page says it all, "He doesn't have to fight at all. He's left in peace - to read." And all the evil characters are turned into docile readers. Lesson learned. The enchanting and colorful illustrations make this a most engaging and fun picture book." - BookSmart Kids
