This collection of seven stories, told in graphic form, is an interesting experiment. Like Flight Explorer, it gathers writers and artists from diverse backgrounds, all linked very loosely by a theme. In this case, each story has a strange box of some kind. Not the same box, just one or more mysterious boxes in the story. It may be magical, or come from outer space, or contain something wonderful or something evil. Just a box.
With that loose of a thematic requirement, the creators seem to have had a delightful time coming up with clever stories. This will be a book that I can recommend to a wide variety of ages for some time to come. I hope it sells well enough to keep more Explorer books coming.
