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.

Annotation:
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.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.

Praise

"Readers won't abandon their battery-charged plastic toys, but they might join in a game of reimagining everyday objects. Most profitably, Portis reminds everyone (especially her adult audience) that creativity doesn't require complicated set-ups." 11/27/2006
