The Birthday Box

By Leslie Patricelli
Illustrated by Leslie Patricelli

"Refreshing. . . . A perfect birthday book for a toddler!" — School Library Journal (starred review)

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 a brief stint as a robot. Good thing the toy pup that came inside the box is happy to come along for the ride! Leslie Patricelli draws from the well of parental wit and wisdom for another adventure starring everyone’s favorite baby character.
