Reviews for The Chalk Box Kid
RatingComments
5Nine-year-old Gregory is going through a tough time: his dad lost his job recently, he just moved to a new neighborhood, he switched schools, he didn't get to celebrate his birthday this year, and the one bright spot of everything -- the bedroom his parents added on to the house just for him (Gregory's never had his own room before) -- he has to share with his 20-year-old slacker, Uncle Max, who just moved in. To make things worse, the kids at school aren't exactly standing in line to be his friends, and his family doesn't have a lot of time for him now. Things start to look up when Gregory discovers an abandoned chalk factory next door. Under the rubble are boxes and boxes of leftover chalk and Gregory starts drawing on the walls. What he draws and what happens when others take notice is the story.
