This is a beautiful book. With beautiful pictures. I now love frumpy green jumpers and boxes all the more.

I enjoyed this book so much because it shows that it is okay to be an individual.

The Man liked boxes and he liked his son as well, but he was too scared to tell him. He made airplanes and all sorts of other things with boxes to show his emotions for his son.
