about

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 PickI dare you to try to read The Snatch-a-book silently to yourself.

[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"
