The Lapsnatcher

About the Story:

Poor Jacob. When his mother was pregnant, he thought having a little sister might be fun.

That was before he found out what it’s really like to have a new baby in the house—a baby who gets everything Jacob wants, including his mother’s lap!

Something has to be done about this lapsnatcher. But what?

Parents and children alike will be amused by Jacob’s efforts to deal with the new baby—and delighted by the heartwarming conclusion to this charming story about love and family.

Herds of Thunder, Manes of Gold (A collection of horse stories and poems)

Following the tradition of The Unicorn Treasury—Bruce Coville’s last book for Doubleday—here is another marvelous gift collection of both classic and original stories and poems.

“Within this enticing collection is material enough to bring sighs of satisfaction from confirmed unicorn lovers and make converts of skeptical newcomers… This book does exactly what anthologies should do. It satisfies on its own while leading readers irresistibly to the longer works of its writers.”—School Library Journal
