I admit to knowing a little in advance about this cute book by new children's author, Anne O'Farrel-Schultz from Penetanguishene, Ontario, before its publication. Having recently received two signed copies for each of my grandchildren, I was anxious to have a good look! I was not disappointed!
A mysterious box appears at the front door to a little girl before school and all day she is left wondering, "What's in the Box?" This colourful and beautifully designed little book jumps out at you from the cover and opening page. It was as educational as it was entertaining and relevant. The story was crisp, fun and the illustrations friendly and truly magical.
This little book was totally enjoyable and I would advise all parents and grandparents to get this for their children and grandchildren for Christmas. I know I am. Bedtime will be much more enjoyable and exciting as we together find out what's in the box.
The local author is a truly gifted and talented storyteller and here's hoping Anne O'Farrel-Schultz publishes many more. Check out her Facebook Page at Front Porch Books or online at frontporchbooks.com
