When Neelu finds an empty cardboard box, she knows exactly what she’s going to make with it: a big, strong fort! 📦

Amma’s red dupatta, the basket of fruits on the table, even her grandparents’ walking sticks — she gathers a myriad of supplies and gets to work on her fort, augmenting her imagination.

But, ouch! Neelu suddenly trips and falls, and now the box is flat. 😯

Will she pick herself up, dust herself off, and find another use for it?

This charming story comes with regional translations, and is a homage to children’s unfettered creativity and indomitable spirit.
