Literary Classics Seal of Approval (March 2012): Young audiences will surely find enjoyment within the pages of this clever little book. Kenneth Lamug's, A Box Story, comes highly recommended, and earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
Kirkus Reviews (2012): Drawings and overall aesthetic are lovely...Lamug presents a minimalist, well-designed take on the elemental idea that children can have hours of fun with a plain cardboard box.
ForeWord Reviews (June 2012): With a nod to the fact that containers often interest kids as much as what's inside, a web designer meditates on the many uses of this most practical (and abstract) of packages: "A box can keep your secrets . . . or reveal an unexpected surprise." Lovely and inspiring.
This Literary Life (March 2012): Something that I found incredibly remarkable about the illustrations is that the box stays in the same place on every single page, but becomes something new and exciting every time you flip to a new page. This gives the reader the impression that it is in fact, the same box being used for a myriad of adventures.The words are simple but thought-provoking. They help build the imagination while simultaneously challenging the reader to find a purpose for their box. A purpose all of their own. Every child will want to build a life inside a box after reading this story.
