What a premise for a children's book. The title would have frightened me as a child. The Snatchabook is one of those quick reads, so the agony of worrying about losing my own book would have been short lived, but still...I'm not sure I want to recommend this book to all children.
Written in verse which makes the reading fast and fun with illustrations that are delightful. The story is saved when all ends well. Maybe that in itself can recommend the book for the lesson we learn is that while things seem to be out of our control, with a little understanding and love, we can make them better or right again.
