The Box, by Bruce Coville This is how the story begins: “Once there was a boy who had a box. The boy’s name was Michael, and the box was very special because it had been given to him by an angel.” As it turns out, the box is not only a gift, but an obligation, and Michael’s attempts to be faithful to his promise to care for the box will affect the course of his life. Copyright is held by Bruce Coville. Included with permission.

He has also been, at various times, a teacher, a toymaker, a magazine editor, a gravedigger, and a cookware salesman.
