The adventure begins when cardboard comes to life!
Cam’s down-and-out father gives him a cardboard box for his birthday and he knows it’s the worst present ever. To make the best of a bad situation, they bend the cardboard into a man – and to their astonishment, it comes magically to life. But the neighborhood jerk, Marcus, warps the powerful cardboard into his own evil creations that threaten to destroy them all!
Another great story and artwork made by the hands of Doug TenNapel.
I’d love to know how Doug TenNapel came up with this idea. Cardboard coming to life! How random is that? This book proves that with a little bit of imagination and a lot of cardboard, you can build just about anything. If you don’t believe me, check out these creations:
Here’s one I would’ve liked to build when I was a kid. Who am I kidding? I would like to build that now.
So, here’s a tip, if you know anyone under the age of 10 who’s having a birthday, I suggest buying them a bunch of large cardboard boxes and colored markers and tell them to go nuts. I know I would’ve loved that as a kid.
