When James received a plain red lunch box as a present from his uncle he was disappointed--until the first time he opened it at school. Instead of the dried apricots, raw cauliflower and bean sprouts his mother had packed, he found hot dogs, a bag of cheese curls, and a candy bar! What happens when his magic lunch box is stolen makes for hilarious reading.
