What I liked about this book was because it showed how all of the characters actually felt and it was funny the illustrations were good and just the book in general was really good I liked that it showed if you believe in things they might come true which was really good because I have not read many books like that an those are the books I like to read too.

I love this book I like the cardboard Dad they should have made a cardboard Cam. It was amazing I will give it a 1,000 persent

Cam's family is very poor, so his dad can't afford to buy him a present.....except for the box. When Cam gets a cardboard box for his birthday, he and his dad build a detailed model of the best boxer ever! And at comes to life! But when Marcus gets his hands on the cardboard Maker Machine, things start to go wrong...... Great for all ages, especially if you want a break from chapter books! It's an easy read with great morals about friendship and being greedy. --BKS reviews
