Random House is proud to present the tenth anniversary edition of a book "Publishers Weekly" called "a gem of a book...a story that goes straight to the heart." When nine-year-old Gregory experiences several upsets in his life, he responds by creating a fantastic chalk garden on the charred walls of a burned-out factory behind his house. As his garden grows and flourishes, Gregory finds a voice through his art and, for the first time, is able to find his own place in the world. "The Chalk Box Kid" is sure to delight a new generation of children and their parents.

In a poignant updating of the theme of Estes' Hundred Dresses, Gregory, a lonely boy who is ignored by his busy parents, who are preoccupied with their own struggle to survive, creates a garden drawn in chalk on the fire-blackened wall of the abandoned factory behind his home. His classmates, who come to taunt, are startled into recognition of his accomplishment when Ivy, who has won a school prize for art, declares that Gregory has surpassed her. A gentle story, gracefully told. (Kirkus Reviews)
