about this item

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 ******-a-book silently to yourself. You can't do it. The book is so wonderful it demands to be read out loud.

I bought this my grandson named Leo. He loves books and was so excited to see his name in print. Needless to say, we have read the book over and over again. He’ll be reading it in a matter of days. Great story and illustrations. Hope they write more “Leo” books  see moreof Rosieb57's review
