What’s better than getting a brand-new toy as a birthday gift? Playing with the box it came in! Climb in for a flight across the ocean, a jaunt on a sailing ship, some sledding down a slippery slope, and a brief stint as a robot. Good thing the toy pup that came inside the box is happy to come for the ride! Leslie Patricelli draws from the well of parental wit and wisdom for this adventure starring her beloved baby character.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—A cheerful toddler receives a wonderful birthday gift: a box. The youngster explores the unintended present and all of its endless possibilities. Together they sail the seas, sled on snow-covered hills, and, at the end of the day, the box becomes a cozy place to take a nap. Bold line drawings and a saturated color palette accompany the side-by-side English and Spanish text. The Spanish translation retains Patricelli's short yet expressive words. There is onomatopoeia, alliteration, and a keen sense of a child's curiosity in this near-perfect board book, which could easily be made into a dynamic flannel-board story.—Shannon Dye, Peoria Public Library, AZ
