The Secret Box

August 12, 2011

The Secret Box
written and illustrated by Barbara Lehman
Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, 2011
wordless picture book, 2011

The Secret Box is the  wordless journey of a box and the children who find it years after it was hidden. They discover the box under a floor board a yellow house.

Times change. A city, trolleys, buildings and a fair builds up around the house.

The box’s treasures connect the children through time and leads them both to the Seahorse Pier through a culvert behind the house.

The illustrations take the reader on an imaginative journey of adventure.
