There is a lot of good in The Mystery Boxes; each story is very different, but the quality, at least for me, doesn't even come close to comparing to Amulet. Here are my ratings of the individual stories:
"Under the Floorboards": Cute, and perfect for a child. ****1/4
"Spring Cleaning": A little too kidsy. ***
"The Keeper's Treasure": Stupid. *
"The Butter Thief": Imaginative. ***3/4
"The Soldier's Daughter": Deals with death, so it might not be suitable for very young readers. ***1/2
"Whatzit": Very, very funny, and almost worth the collection by itself. ****3/4
"The Escape Option": Done by Kibuishi himself. ****
That averages out to about ***1/3, but this collection is better than the sum of its parts. For kids 8 or 9 to 12, it's ideal. As an adult, I have to rank it ***3/4
My favorite selections from this title would have to be Under the Floorboards, Spring Cleaning, and The Butter Thief. I wasn't too big on Whatzit, but that comes as a personal preference. Kazu's story was just okay this time around. All of the stories are pretty entertaining in their own way. Each of the books will deal with an overall different theme, so I think that's pretty cool.
