The Snatchabook - Helen Docherty, Thomas Docherty

A story about bedtime books and adorable forest creatures: twee and appealing as anything. It's a good thing someone had't been holding the library's copy when I saw the cover, lest fingers had been lost. And it's as good as the idea sounds.

But the art really makes it. Somehow it looks very like a children's books from the mid-60s without copying at all. It doesn't look like Scarry's style, but the little homes with the little beds and all, it beautifully evokes those vintage books.
