Child or adult, we all love a good mystery. And the book, Do Not Open the Box, written and illustrated by Timothy Young, takes readers on a rollicking adventure filled with growing suspense. The main character, Benny, is bursting with curiosity about the possibilities hidden within a big box that he discovered in his house.
Maybe he’ll find a robot inside for his upcoming birthday. A pack of of puppies? Or horrors - it could be a box of snakes - or a slimy monster that would make him tremble and shake.
Will Benny finally open the box or just leave it alone? I won’t spoil the surprise ending for you or your young ones. You just need to check out this delightful book.
I really enjoyed the story and I believe adults will too. The lively and colorful illustrations by Young make this a book that young readers will want to read again and again. In fact, I was so taken by the happy illustrations that I had to visit Young’s Web site: Creatures and Characters. You might want to take a peek too.
