San Francisco Book Review:
A Box Story provides the perfect springboard for creative ways to turn an empty box into a work of art and a vehicle (both literally and figuratively) for the imagination. The simple illustrations are imaginative and often beautiful with eye-catching colors.

Literary Classics Seal of Approval (March 2012): Young audiences will surely find enjoyment within the pages of this clever little book. Kenneth Lamug's, A Box Story, comes highly recommended, and earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
ForeWord Reviews (June 2012): With a nod to the fact that containers often interest kids as much as what's inside, a web designer meditates on the many uses of this most practical (and abstract) of packages: "A box can keep your secrets . . . or reveal an unexpected surprise." Lovely and inspiring.
This Literary Life (March 2012): The words are simple but thought-provoking. They help build the imagination while simultaneously challenging the reader to find a purpose for their box. A purpose all of their own. Every child will want to build a life inside a box after reading this story.
The idea for "A Box Story" came to me in a dream. I woke up at that moment and sketched out the idea right away. Within the next few days I had put aside all the projects I was working on and poured my heart into the book.
My original intention was to keep the drawings simple and in black and white, leaving the reader to use their imagination in interpreting the images. I eventually decided to give a splash of color to the illustrations while retaining the intended subtle message.
The metaphor for the box is not an entirely new idea, but I felt a deep personal connection in its "meaningful simplicity" that I had to share it in my own unique way. I hope that the reader is affected in the same way and that the idea grows in their mind and heart as it did in mine.
I ordered this book because it was shown as a recommendation to another children's book I was purchasing. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Sandy Cooper
