The Box is a delightfully illustrated children’s book promoting imaginative play.
It’s time to put the electronic devices away and bring out a plain old cardboard box.
But what can you do with a box? ‘A box is just a box, except when it’s not.’

A young boy uses his imagination as he plays with a box in many different ways. A box can be a football goal, a pirate ship, a racing car, a bus, a rocket ship. The list goes on and on. The illustration shows the brown cardboard box with the imaginative pir

***** SUCH a cute book! *****
Because a Box is just a box except when it is not! This book is so darn cute! My almost three year old giggled at every page and tried to name each of the things the boy in the book was making before I read them. The illustrations are colorful and inviting too... I think I need to go get some more boxes for my kids to play with now!

I give Jo Linsdell's book The Box 5 stars- this is a book I can see reading again and again to my little one!

Ps. I was given a reviewers

What I’ve always loved about Linsdell’s children’s books is their simplicity and creativity. As a mom, she knows what young readers are looking for. She proves this once again with The Box. How often do parents joke that we buy our kids a bunch of toys for their birthday and they end up playing with the boxes? Linsdell truly gets into the heart of a child with this one. The adorable illustrations keep the reader focused on the boy and his magic box that he can transform into anything.

I've enjoyed writing since I could hold a pen in my hand but officially started my writing career in 2006. Since then I've worked for numerous clients around the world and won a few awards along the way too.

I've also published several books including the best selling children's picture story books 'Out and About at the Zoo', 'Fairy May' and 'The Box', plus non fiction books'Italian for Tourists',
