The Box

By Axel Janssens
Published by Clavis Uitgeverij, 2012

This book is about Leo, who is very proud of his new bicycle, and is showing it off at school. He crashes into a box that is in the middle of the playground area. In the box is Kenny, who is imagining that the box is a number of different things. Leo is not willing to believe that the box can be so many things. However, Kenny brings the box to life with his imagination and all of the kids want to play with him and the box. Leo is feeling lonely and finally is willing to let Kenny be the center of attention and play with him and his extraordinary imagination.

This new book is great for discussing conflict, as each of the situations that Kenny imagines has an element of conflict. The major conflict, of course, is between Leo and Kenny as well.
