The highly original sci-fi tale, sequel to Marco's Millions, about Annie, whose curiosity about two boxes left by her mysterious Uncle Marco unleashes a force which can slow down time.

The Boxes Zusammenfassung

The Boxes William Sleator

When Annie's Uncle Marco goes on one of his frequent trips, he leaves two sealed boxes in Annie's care. His instructions are clear: under no circumstances should she open the boxes. But, left alone with her uncaring aunt, there is little to distract Annie from the mystery of the boxes, and soon she is consumed by an overwhelming desire to open them.

When finally her willpower gives out, she unleashes a creature which reproduces at an alarming rate, and, even more incredibly, a force which can slow down time. Then the Crutchley Development Company discovers her secret, and sets out to harness the power of the boxes for their own despicable purposes. But they bargain without Annie and her friend Henry's determination to stop them - and their courage in taking on the nature of time itself.

The Boxes Bewertungen

THE BEASTIES: 'With all the moral complexity of H.G. Wells' THE TIME MACHINE ... May well leave readers with some soul-searching questions about nature's changing environment that resonate long after the cover is closed.' * Publisher's Weekly *
INTERSTELLAR PIG: 'Sleator's science fiction story is compelling on first reading - but stellar on the second ... raises enough questions to keep readers thinking - and wondering - well past the last page.' * School Library Journal *
THE NIGHT THE HEADS CAME: '... A thought-provoking, page-turning exploration of alien life forms.' * Booklist *
THE BOXES: 'William Sleator has git on another winner with this entertaining, pacy yarn.' * Birmingham Evening Mail, July 2001 *
