Celebrate the unlimited potential of an empty box! A picture book that doubles as the perfect present for preschoolers
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, of course, a brief stint as a robot. Good thing the toy dog that came inside the box is happy to come along for the ride! The inimitable Leslie Patricelli draws from the well of parental wit and wisdom for her very first picture book adventure, starring everyone’s favorite baby character.
Leslie Patricelli is the author-illustrator of five board books that have become must-have titles for toddlers. Of THE BIRTHDAY BOX, she says: "I’ve watched my kids transform boxes into cars, boats, spaceships, hospital beds, dog carriers, snake houses, bass drums, forts, airplanes, sleds, and, yes, even a robot." Leslie Patricelli lives in Seattle.
