A collection of seven stories all surrounding one question: what's in the mysterious box?

I quite liked this book. There are seven stories in here, of which I loved four of them.

The story Under the Floorboards by Emily Carroll might be my favourite. I so enjoy her style, and I will buy anything this woman comes up with. The art style is dark and gloomy and perfect.

I also very much enjoyed The Keeper's Tresure by Jason Caffoe, The Soldier's Daughter by Stuart Livingston and The Escape Option by Kazi Kubishi. These were stories where I very much enjoyed both the art and the plot. Especially the colouring of these are very beautiful.

The reason I didn't find the other three stories appealing, is because I don't like what I perceive to be a childish art style.

I would definitely recommend this if you like graphic novels, and I think this is a good way to be introduced to several authors and artists to find out what you like!
