Synopsis

Harry's Box by Angela McAllister

When Harry and his mother get home from the supermarket Harry is allowed to keep the cardboard box to play with. Soon that box is a ship sailing the high seas with a pirate on board, a cave in which to hide from passing bears, a shop stuffed full of goodies. Soon that box becomes a limitless number of things - as limitless as Harry's imagination.
