From the Publisher:
Why would a beautifully wrapped birthday present hold nothing but an empty box? Ten leading authors give us ten deliciously different answers to the same question. Kids are invited to savor these original birthday surprises, then try their own solutions to the mystery of the empty box."This unique collection of short stories celebrates the creative power of imagination. At Hurwitz's invitation 10 well-known children's authors have written pieces based on a single premise: a young person finds an empty box among his or her birthday gifts. The enormously varied responses range in tone from amusing to heartwarmingly sad; all provide food for thought....An excellent surprise package."--School Library Journal.
Annotation:
Ten authors, including Ellen Conford, James Howe, and Ann M. Martin, contribute stories all based on the same premise with very different results. Each story begins with a child receiving a beautifully wrapped box on his or her birthday, but when it is opened, the box turns out to be empty.
