9780007254798: Not A Box

A beautifully designed book, celebrating the power of the imagination to transform even the most ordinary of objects into something magical.

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 the memory of sitting in a box on her driveway with her brother, Antoinette Portis captures the thrill of when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes reality. Her simple, spare text and illustrations show that seeing truly depends on the ability to believe in the possibilities.

Product Description:

Not a Box

Review:

“Dedicated ‘to children everywhere sitting cardboard boxes’, this wonderful little book perfectly captures the amazing capacity of a child’s imagination to create endless possibilities out of a humble box. Brilliantly illustrated with a cute bunny (bearing a passing homage to the graphic minimalism of Duck Bruna’s Miffy), the box becomes all manner of wonderful things, from a rocketship to a hot-air balloon – anything but a plain old cardboard box. A super book that’s as close to perfection as a picture book can get!” Junior

“Simple and appealing... Nicely packaged in a cardboard cover, it looks like a kids’ classic in the making.” Time Out

“A stylish paean to the imagination for two- to four-year-olds.” Financial Times Magazine

“This fashionably simple book has Rabbit encouraging young children to explore imaginary worlds whilst sitting in a cardboard box – on land or water or up into space. Great fun.” Carousel

“The adorable story of Rabbit and imaginative world within a simple cardboard box.” Practical Parenting
