What To Do With a Box
If you give a child a box, who can tell what will happen next? It may become a library or a boat. It could set the scene for a fairy tale or a wild expedition. The most wonderful thing is its seemingly endless capacity for magical adventure, a feature imaginatively captured in cardboardesque art by Chris Sheban and rhythmically celebrated in this poetic tribute by renowned children's author Jane Yolen.
'My name is Bruno, and this is my box It's not just an ordinary box though, I can be whatever I like'. Leap into Bruno's world, where you can be a racing driver, or an astronaut, a pirate or even a dinosaur.

Along the way they’ll get muddy and messy and hungry and sleepy—just as all little ones do.
