PreS-Gr 1-Nothing sparks a child's imagination quite like a cardboard box. This book enumerates a variety of possibilities for this deceptively mundane container. When a boy, a girl, and a dog explore the uses of a large box, Yolen suggests it can become a library, a palace, a canvas, a boat, a car, or a plane. Sheban's acrylic, pencil, and watercolor illustrations are painted directly onto cardboard, its beige color and texture peeking throughout the softly glowing spreads depicting the box's many incarnations. Despite the rhyming text mentioning various fantastic prospects, the box itself remains unchanged, even as it's employed to tow an overturned Eiffel tower or fly through the air. VERDICT Though not as imaginative or charming as Antoinette Portis's Not a Box (HarperCollins, 2006), this is a sweet story that could be welcome in collections where books about imagination are in demand.-Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova, formerly at Chappaqua Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2011.

"Charmingly captures both real life and imaginary adventures." - Booklist, Starred Review
"Intuitive, inspired executions of art and verse perfectly capture the unending fun of time spent inside a box." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review
