Not a Box

By Antoinette Portis (HarperCollins)

The book cover of "Not a Box" by Antoinette Portis features a rabbit looking at a rectangular object.  To the right of the author's name is the text: "Net. Wt. 11.5 oz."  The Seuss Honor Book Award Seal has been applied in the upper right corner.


Spare line drawings and minimal text show a personified bunny playing with, in and on a cardboard box. Beginning readers delight in discovering the rabbit's unlimited imaginative play in this square brown book.
