Jack in a Box by Julia Jarman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


On Tom's birthday all Jack gets is an empty cardboard box but what exciting places he can visit! JACK IN A BOX celebrates the imagination of children and their ability to transform the mundane into a fantastical adventure. It was Tom's birthday. Tom got lots of presents. 'Ha!' Jack got the boxes. 'Huh!' Then Jack finds a special way to visit the Rocky Mountains, land on a treasure island and whoosh into space. Can boxes really be as exciting as presents?
