Benny spots a big cardboard box with a note taped to it saying, "Do Not Open." His imagination runs wild, and it's almost too much for a curious boy to bear. He thinks about all of the things, good and bad, that could be inside that box. A birthday robot? A wolverine? An entrance to another world? What should he do? This endearingly illustrated tale of a classic childhood dilemma has a surprise ending and offers a peek into a young boy's mind as he weighs tantalizing possibilities against the risks of breaking the rules.

This was a great little story. Benny sees a huge box that says "Do Not Open This Box". Being a typical child he tries to imagine what might be in the box. Could it be cookies or maybe puppies. Should I open the box and let them out. Then he thinks of all the negative things that could be in the box like snakes or monsters. He decides not to open it and walks away. That is a tough decision to make. A cute surprise about what is actually in the box. I loved the illustrations. The backgrounds were all done like corrugated cardboard and the pictures were colourful and detailed. Children would be able to take their time to look at all the stuff in the pictures. Not a difficult read for younger children and it would make a great read aloud, especially when talking about patience. A great addition to home, classroom, school and public libraries. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
