A box is just a box . . . unless it's not a box. From mountain to rocket ship, a small rabbit shows that a box will go as far as the imagination allows.
Inspired by a memory of sitting in a box on her driveway with her sister, Antoinette Portis captures the thrill when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes real--when the imagination takes over and inside a cardboard box, a child is transported to a world where anything is possible.
Antoinette Portis is the author of many inventive books, including "Not a Box", a "New York Times "Best Illustrated Book and a Geisel Honor Book. She is the recipient of a Sendak Fellowship. "Froodle" is her first book for Roaring Brook Press. Ms. Portis lives in southern California.
