The nowhere box by Sam Zuppardi (2013)

[Published by Walker Books]

nowhereI’ve got to confess I’m a little jealous of George’s box. The rain is bucketing down outside, I’ve got loads of things I should be doing, a wee jaunt to “nowhere” for a few hours would be quite pleasant.

George’s problem is of the small-sibling variety. He just wants to get away from his two younger brothers for a while. In good news, a giant refrigerator box makes the perfect means of escape. With the press of a button he finds himself… Nowhere. For a while Nowhere is mighty fine, but eventually the alone-ness of Nowhere doesn’t feel so great and it’s time to set a course for home, and family.IMG_1821

George’s adventures are loads of fun, and the message about appreciating family is a good one to be reminded of on a regular basis.
