Boris and the Snoozebox book. The art is collage and cartoons, wildly eccentric and What I love about Leigh Hodgkinson: Her sweet, sly, and quirky sense of humor. Her mad typography skills.

Boris and the Snoozebox book. Her ability to use just enough words to tell a story.

Sometimes Boris would do anything for a place to snuggle for a long na.

Boris and the Snoozebox Paperback – September 1, 2009. The artwork in "Boris and the Snoozebox" is absolutely delightful. It's mixed media and is just the sort of thing that I think would stimulate anyone to trying to do something of their own in a similar vein

In style, it reminds me of Lauren Child of "Charlie and Lola" fame. And truly the book has that much visual appeal. Really a lot of fun! Where's it's lacking though is in the plot department.

Colin doesn't have a home. He doesn't even have a bed, which is A-OK most of the time but not when he is tired and grouchy and in need of a long catnap. When Colin spies a cardboard box, he thinks it looks perfect for snoozing in, so imagine his surprise when he is parcelled up and mailed around the world and beyond. but no one wants him. They would rather have a teapot or a pair of pink flippers, not an increasingly cross cat. Will he ever end up on the right doorstep?

All Boris wants is a long catnap in his new cardboard box with no trouble whatsoever. But suddenly--STAMP, STAMP, scribble, scribble--the box is taped up and zoomed off to doorsteps all over the earth and beyond. . . . Every time Boris drifts off to sleep, someone opens the box and wakes him up. Beady eyes peek inside and loud voices shout, "This is NOT what I ordered! I DON'T want this cat!" (They want a prickly plant . . . giant teapot . . . or remote-controlled space butterfly.) This quirky cat tale proves there's no place like a loving homeespecially if that home happens to have a plumpish pillow perfect for snooooooozing!

My kids (5 and 2 yrs) love this story, always cracks them up. Illustrations and characters very amusing!

This author has an interesting way to write stories that are fun. I've purchased others by her & am happy. We love this one! There is another Boris story (and the wrong shadow) but this one was the better of the two.
Mala
This is a great story. The illustrations are very engaging and the story is interesting and brings the character to life. We have enjoyed reading it to our youngest.
Leniga
My daughter loves this story. We both enjoyed the illustrations. The fonts used are all different which adds to the interest!

I debated getting this book for my 3-year-olds because as other reviewers have mentioned, the fonts are kind of busy. I was worried that it may be confusing for them. I was happily wrong. They love this book! My daughter has to sleep with it at night. "This is such a silly book, Mommy" she says over and over. Boris the cat is simply looking for a place to sleep when he gets packed up and shipped off to different people who aren't expecting him and don't want a cat. The story is absolutely endearing with a happy ending and an important message: nobody wants to be told that they aren't wanted. Just like Boris, most of us just want to be snuggled from time to time. The art is incredibly creative and unique compared to other children's books--and believe me, I've read hundreds. Another fun part of this book is the humor that is layered for different developmental levels. There's things that I get that I know my kids won't for a few years. It's great to find a book that feels like it was written for me too! I can't wait to check out the author's other books.

Where's it's lacking though is in the plot department. There is a story -- Boris the cat doesn't have a home and he very much wants a comfy place to sleep, but unfortunately he chooses a box for his nap. The box gets shipped around the world and ends up in some surprising places. But unfortunately none of the openers of the box want a cat. That is, until he arrives at Grandma Flapjacks -- but unfortunately there's no real moral or anything to learn from the story. Which leaves me liking the book, very much on account of the fun artwork, but not loving it.

Talking Points:::
o Definitely LibraryFind here. The artwork is fun and the format is amusing.

o Elementary School-aged Kids will be entertained. It's a fun book to share. HOWEVER, while I do recommend it as LibraryFind, I can't recommend it for purchase because it's got no 'meat'.

o The busy font motif might be too much for very young children. This is one of those books where the font changes frequently, and where information is put in varying places.

This gal uses words and fonts in visual art like no one I have ever seen, and her quirky and sweet sense of humor is a hit in my house. Boris is soooo sleepy, and finds the perfect place for a nap… until the box gets shipped around the world to all kinds of folks who do NOT want a cat. Will Boris ever find that perfect snoozing spot? Spoiler: yes. Yay!
The artwork in this book is lovely. It is bright and colorful. However, the bright artwork, plus the crazy fonts make for a challenging read. The story is mediocre- it really could have been better. My children were impressed by the bright colors, but got tired of the book quickly. The font and the pictures leave you feeling very scatterbrained.
Boris the cat is homeless. He falls asleep in a box. He is shipped over and over, each time the recipient of the box doesn't want Boris. He finally finds a home in the end. No turns, no twists, just a cat in a box.
