Magicbird – Box Boy at the Zoo
Written by by C. K. Koh
“Do nor play on the streets!” “Don’t talk with your mouth full!”
“Go to bed!” “No jumping!”
We’re all familiar with rules. They are everywhere we go and we cannot escape from them. Are rules to keep you safe or to make your life harder? This third Box Boy book follows Box Boy on another of his philosophical journeys to better understand the world. In this book, we see Box Boy with zoo animals trying to make sense of what freedom is. Are the animals happy to be caged in a zoo, safe but bound by their rules? Or, are they happier roaming the wild as nature would intend, less safe but without rules.
