Synopsis: After he talks with an adult who was once a lapsnatcher, Jacob begins to feel differently about his new baby sister

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-K. Jacob finds that being a brother is not all it's cracked up to be?especially when the new baby is a lapsnatcher. So what's a big brother to do? Mail his sister to Alaska? Put her out with the garbage? Send her back to the diaper service? Fortunately, this boy is as reasonable as he is inventive. With some kindly advice from the mailman, the garbage man, and the diaper lady (and a little lap time with his mom), he gets some perspective on babyhood?his own as well as his sister's?and concludes, "I guess maybe we can keep that lapsnatcher." Moss's pen-and-watercolor drawings echo the warmth and affection of the narrative. However, Jane Cutler's Darcy and Gran Don't Like Babies (Scholastic, 1993) makes the same point with considerably more flair. By comparison, Coville's effort seems bland and predictable. The introduction of a new sibling is a common situation, and there is room for many an approach; but whereas Darcy is likely to be clamored for again and again, The Lapsnatcher is more apt to be read and enjoyed once, and then forgotten.?Marcia Hupp, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY
