I think this book is sad, but good because it is about a poor boy and his dad. In the story the dad buys his son a cardboard box for his birthday...
My favorite part of the story is when the boy becomes friends with a rich boy on the street because the rich boy was very mean to him before.
The character that I liked best is the rich boy because he looks funny and he is a funny person.
I think the author wrote this book because he wanted to write a sad/happy story.
