A story told in pictures; it is a romp from start to finish from the time of the arrival of a large parcel, containing two useful but rather dull child-sized chairs, to the use of the box as a hidey hole or a boat or a... whoops, they're off and the box takes flight! Away the children go, through and out of the city to the seaside, out to sea, below and above the sea, with whales and treasure chests and on to the jungle... when they begin to wish for home and food. Back in the safety of their own familiar house, the box is removed to the rubbish but the children retrieve it in case of further adventures.
An attractive book with good pictures and much to talk about in it. Very young children may need the help of a sharing adult to follow the order of the pictures and maintain the story line.
