New York Times–bestselling illustrator Kim Smith’s author-illustrator debut

Nothing’s better than building with boxes!

Meg is a brilliant and creative boxitect. She loves building extraordinary things out of ordinary cardboard boxes and impressing her classmates with what she creates. But then a new kid comes to Maker School: Simone. Simone is good at everything. Worst of all, she’s a boxitect too! Will Meg and Simone find a way to push past their rivalry and join creative forces?
