From the Publisher:
A box is just a box . . . unless it's not a box. From mountain to rocket ship, a small rabbit shows that a box will go as far as the imagination allows.
Inspired by a memory of sitting in a box on her driveway with her sister, Antoinette Portis captures the thrill when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes real—when the imagination takes over and inside a cardboard box, a child is transported to a world where anything is possible.
A bunny with imagination and vision is up to all sorts of playtime fun with what some ignorant people might think is simply a plain cardboard box. But for this fluffy kid, it's a race car, a mountain, and even a burning building. Will the rabbit ever be able to convince anyone that it's not a box? With thick, B&W line drawings, and a limited number of colors--just cherry red, pale yellow, and crisp white, this was one of the 2007 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award Honor Books, as well as a 2007 New York Times Best Illustrated Book.
