Roxaboxen

Roxaboxen

From two-time Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator Barbara Cooney and celebrated children's book author Alice McLerran comes Roxaboxen, a treasured story about the magic of a child's imagination.

Marian called it Roxaboxen. There across the road, it looked like any rocky hill-nothing but sand and rocks, and some old wooden boxes. But it was a special place. And all children needed to go there was a long stick and a soaring imagination.

"A celebration of the transforming magic of the imagination. An original." -ALA Booklist
