The Snatchabook by Helen Dochtery - ESSENTIAL

Docherty, Helen The Snatchabook, illustrated by Thomas Docherty.  PICTURE BOOK.  SourcebooksJabberwocky, 2013.  $17.  

Right in the middle of bedtime story time, everyone’s book disappears.  And the next night, and the next.  Eliza Brown, the rabbit, is determined to solve the mystery.  Could it be someone else just wants someone to read them a story?

Really loved this.  The illustrations evoke just the right touch of bedtime and spookiness for the mystery and the hopeful little Snatch-A-Book it supremely adorable.  The rhymes flow smoothly, making this a good option for reading aloud any time of the year.
