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.
From the Author
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.

The bonus for me was the story which is made up of a series of thoughts and observations that accompany each drawing. The words are simple yet profound.
I've read this book a couple of times, and I know I'll read it again, it's that kind of book. The message is for kids and adults. It would make a great bedtime story, a wonderful story time story, or a discussion starter at a corporate meeting or a fancy dinner party. As you can tell, I like this book a LOT!!!
I don't think a review of A Box Story could be complete without taking a minute to remark on the quality of the illustrations. Rabble Boy is an extremely talented artist and I simply cannot wait to get my hands on more of his work!
All in all, I am pleased with my purchase, and look look forward to future books from this author/illustrator.
