Description - Now Open The Box by Dorothy Kunhardt

Peewee the dog didn't know any tricks, "not even a single one not even how to roll over not even how to shake hands but never mind he is so teeny weeny that everyone loves him," the clown, the fat lady, the thin man, the strong baby, the acrobats, the elephant, the goat on the burning bed, and all the other amazing performers in the wonderful circus of the man with the quite tall red hat. But then something unexpected happens that threatens to bring Peewee's place under the Big Top to an end.

Now Open the Box is a beautiful example of the art of Dorothy Kunhardt, the author of the timeless classic Pat the Bunny and the pioneering picture book Junket Is Nice. Here Kunhardt speaks with wonderfully reassuring directness to children's hopes and fears while making magic out of the simplest things.

Dorothy Kunhardt (1901-1979) was an influential author of books designed for small children, best known for her interactive Pat the Bunny (1940), the bestselling American children's book of all time and the second-bestselling children's book in the United States after Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Her first book, Junket Is Nice, appeared in 1933 and was soon followed by other children's classics, including Now Open the Box, Lucky Mrs. Ticklefeather, Brave Mr. Buckingham, and Tiny Animal Stories.
