The Snatchabook

The Snatchabook is written by Helen Docherty
Illustrated by Thomas Docherty

Rating 4 out of 5 stars

This book is so cute. It is about an animal who steals other animal's books. Eliza [the rabbit] is trying to find the book stealer. When she found the stealer she taught him how to stop stealing.  The stealer returned all the books that he stole to the owners and apologized.  They all became friends after that.  

I think kids would like it because it is fun and kids will like to find out who is stealing the books. The illustrations were lovely and detailed.  The Snatchabook can help teach young children about the difference between stealing and borrowing.

This book was written by a husband and wife team.  I would recommend this it to ages 5 and up. Parents and teachers, it would make a nice read aloud. 


  1. Hi Molly, I found you from your mother's link! I loved this book, too, and shared it with some five year olds a few weeks ago. You're right, they loved it! I think it's great you've started a blog. Perhaps you can connect with some middle schoolers at my school? One class blogs about their books each week! Thanks for the review!

    1. That would be cool to connect with another school. Thank you for reading my blog.

  2. Molly - I read your Mom's blog every week! Love that you are following in her passionate book loving footsteps. My students (Grades 2/3/4) adored this title. They got very worried about thinking of what would happen if a Snatchabook happened upon our classroom!

    1. Haha! They sound funny. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post.
