Gilbert Filbert and his big MAD box

The story of one boy’s desire to make a difference and help his mother find her smile again.


It is a book about a boy, a box and a battle for a penguin. More than that, it is a tale about families, hope and how to make dreams come true.

The powerful set of thinking tools included in this book will help young people to develop habits of mind that will last a lifetime.
