The Box Boy

The Box Boy

$19.00

A boy loves collecting things, especially cardboard boxes. He makes more and more amazing things from boxes, until his work is noticed by an art gallery director who gives him a big exhibition. He tires of artistic fame though, and goes back home to play with his boxes, until one day he discovers a new collectible, with potential, inside a box – bubble wrap!

Mal loved drawing from a young age. His school reports often said, ‘Mal is a dreamer’, as he preferred to gaze out the window and let his imagination drift instead of concentrating in class. His schoolbooks were often filled with plans for creative inventions like the ‘Homework Machine’.

As a boy, Mal loved collecting boxes… He is yet to grow out of this habit.

The Box Boy is Mal’s third picture book
