Every kid knows a cardboard box can be magic. But what if it could talk? This funny, fast-paced graphic novel celebrates friendship and the fun of building new things.
Matthew likes to build things. And invent things. So finding a box sitting in front of his house one day is a real stroke of luck. But he has to pinch himself when it suddenly starts talking. A living toolbox! Even better, Box loves to invent things too, so the two become fast friends. But where did Box come from, and how did he get to be so magical?
