A hill covered with rocks and wooden boxes becomes the imaginary town of Roxaboxen for Marian, her sisters, and their friends. Roxaboxen was real in the minds and hearts of children who played there and it stayed in their memory as the years went by, the seasons changed. None forgot Roxaboxen. Their imaginations enriched each others lives as the bits and pieces of treasures they gathered together built the town of Roxaboxen .
Young readers will celebrate the magic in their hearts and imagination that creates, with the most unpromising materials, a world of fantasy so real and multidimensional that it earns a lasting place in memory.
