Summary: Jack the bunny gets a new toy as a present from his family. It talks to and plays with him on his own, unlike the Jack-in-the-box we are used to!

This book was great Graphic Novel that shows the imaginative side of a child through its sequenced graphics. There are very few words, and those that are used are easy to read for a young child. You get to first hand watch a child named Jack play with his silly toy, Zack. It's all fun, and you feel like you are in on their little secret friendship because his parents don't seem to understand Zack talks to Jack! I would recommend this to a preschool and parents in general to read to their child because it lets their imagination wonder, as well as learn to love to read!

This book is book for early readers, because of children beginning know new words.

It was ok, but Z liked it for the fact that it is the first book that is 31 pages that he read in one sitting. ( )

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that a master of Spiegelman’s experience can show a variety of expressions even with simple line characters.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979923832, Hardcover)

“[The] artwork will appeal to a broad range of lower-level readers. True to its comic-strip roots…this title is a surefire hit.” – School Library Journal
Jack just got a new toy, and it’s full of surprises. Each time the box pops open, there’s a new and bigger surprise. Is it a silly toy, a scary toy…or something else entirely?
With a limited vocabulary and unlimited imagination, Art Spiegelman applies his out-of-the-box thinking to a book that has all the surprise and bounce of a jack-in-the-box.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:00:42 -0400)

Mom and Dad give Jack a new toy, but what's in the box? Is it silly or scary, or something else entirely?
