Kid Konnection: The Snatchabook

June 15, 2013

The Snatchabook

Eliza the bunny was settling down in bed to read a book and her book suddenly disappears.  She’s left confused but then discovers something similar has been happening all over the woods.   As rumors spread, Eliza decides she has to get to the bottom of things and comes up with a plan.  She’s nervous, but determined and catches the little Snatchabook.  She talks to him and finds out that he’s sad because he has no one to read to him.  Together they come up with a plan that’s sure to work for everyone.

The Snatchabook, by Helen and Thomas Docherty is a darling picture book that you’ll love to share with your children.  There’s so much to love about this book, including the wonderful illustrations.  Eliza is such a great character.  She’s strong and brave but also empathetic when she discovers the Snatchabook isn’t lucky enough to have someone to read with.  She doesn’t seek revenge; she seeks a solution.

Children are sure to love the excitement and mystery of The Snatchabook.  There’s just enough tension to make them want to turn the pages but not too much to scare them away.  This is a wonderful book for the whole family to share!  You can pre-order this book now or look for it in October.

    The story and illustrations sound adorable! Also, perhaps the positive message about books would entice reluctant readers.

    I had forgotten about Kid Konnection! After my summer course and vacation, I need to participate in it. 🙂

    After reading why the little snatchabook stole the books it made me smile. Sounds adorable!
