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 Pick"I dare you to try to read The Snatch-a-book silently to yourself. You can't do it. The book is so wonderful it demands to be read out loud.

Reviews

The Storybook Knight is not only about the power of books, but a book that teaches children to stand up for what they love. The funny and heartwarming illustrations full of details are the perfect addition to the meaningful story. "The "Storybook Knight" is not only about the power of books, but a book that teaches children to stand up for what they love. The funny and heartwarming illustrations full of details are the perfect addition to the meaningful story." - The Reading Castle "The last page says it all, "He doesn't have to fight at all. He's left in peace - to read." And all the evil characters are turned into docile readers. Lesson learned. The enchanting and colorful illustrations make this a most engaging and fun picture book." - BookSmart Kids "There are delightful spreads done in acrylic ink and watercolor that pair beautifully with the rhyming stanzas. The characters' voices are distinct and beg to be read aloud. VERDICT A recommended purchase for all collections and perfect for storytime, bedtime, or anytime." - School Library Journal "I absolutely love that our main character, Leo, is a reader. I don't think I've ever felt so attached to a picture book character before." - Lazy Day Literature "The Storybook Knight celebrates the power of the written word, which Leo uses to defeat the beasts he comes across as opposed to his mighty sword. Featuring breathtaking illustrations by Thomas Docherty, The Storybook Knight is a must-read for children and adults alike." - The Novel Orange "It has all the key elements of a great story: adventure, rhyming cadence, a knight in shining armor, a dragon and other fearsome beasts, gifts of books, etc. " - So Few Books "I really like how this book doesn't condone that you need to fight to be brave and to solve your problems. That you can use a book (and your smarts) and find a solution. Also, I like that it shows that books bring people (or creatures!) together!" - Reading with Cupcakes "Truly a delightful picture book for both adults and children! My grandson loves this one for the rhyming that lends itself to some fantastic reading aloud. " - The Novel Life "While it is fun and exciting read the book is mellow enough to enjoy it as a bedtime story." - Vimaneaa "My smile kept getting bigger and bigger as I read this beautifully written and illustrated tale. This is a great story to read morning, noon or night!" - YA Book Divas "Though very different, "The Storybook Knight" reminds me a lot of "Giraffe's Can't Dance." There's a timeless quality to it that will appeal to parents and children alike." - Cracking the Cover "I absolutely LOVE this book for children. First of all, the message. The message! The moral of the story here is this: you do not need to fight to get what you want accomplished, you can use your brain. " - The Book Collective "This book is perfect for bookworm parents to read to their children...I loved the messages - both solving problems without fighting and the joy of reading. " - Mom's Radius "Helen Docherty's breezy rhyming and Thomas Docherty's lighthearted, imaginative cartooning make this a sweet, fresh take on the typical reading-is-fun tale, while also slyly nodding to our culture of personal celebrity." - Publishers Weekly "I absolutely LOVED this story. It has such a wonderful message about how books and stories can help us make friends and even avoid violence. It's a powerful message also to parents who want to push their children to do something they want vs. what the child really loves. Aside from these valuable lessons, The Storybook Knight was very entertaining to read. " - The Plot Bunny "In an homage to reading that also recalls The Story of Ferdinand, the power of words is extolled in rhyme... A sweet tale about the power of story, just right for nascent fans of Redwall." - Kirkus "The Storybook Knight is not only about the power of books, but a book that teaches children to stand up for what they love. The funny and heartwarming illustrations full of details are the perfect addition to the meaningful story." - The Reading Castle
