George escapes! Where? How? Simple- a cardboard box and lots of imagination!

Nov 18, 2014

George has two little brothers who drive him crazy. Everywhere he goes, they follow. He decides to create his own pretend place inside a washing machine box. He tells the brothers he is going nowhere. He uses his imagination to make nowhere a creative and fun place to play. But he eventually gets lonely and realizes playing with this brothers isn't so bad after all.

The illustrations in this book are mixed media--a combination of paint, pencil and cardboard. The drawings are done in such a way--with lots of scribbly pencil marks--that they look like children's drawings. Basically what you see on the cover is throughout the book. Although the pictures are colorful and the cardboard interesting, the scribbling drove me crazy.

Although the story is a bit weak in content (there could have been more), it is a good message for boys with little brothers.
