Nice little read! Reminded me of the flight series. ( )
  Brian-B | Nov 30, 2022 |
Mostly good, a couple of duds.
Under the floorboards: bland artwork and predictable plot.
Spring cleaning: cute and absurd; bonus points for humour.
The keeper's treasure: solid artwork and story but a troubling resolution imo.
The butter thief: nice art, clever enough plot.
The soldier's daughter: preachy and lacklustre plot.
Whatzit: engaging cartoony art, loved the resolution.
The escape option: well-plotted with lovely illustrations, deserves to be read twice. ( )

Eight tales revolving eight different mystery boxes, each with its own moral and a window into our imagination. A must read for both children and their parents. ( )
