  About The Book

The Boxtrolls--named for the discarded cardboard containers they wear--dwell in the dark and musty caverns under the cobblestone streets of Cheesebridge. Human legend has it the creatures are carnivorous monsters, but, in reality, they're just misunderstood oddballs who've raised an orphan human boy named Eggs.


When Eggs discovers his true identity, he finds himself in the very center of the ongoing struggle between his Boxtroll family and the Cheese-loving, fear-mongering humans. In the end, it takes a privileged little girl named Winnie to teach both Eggs and the Victorian-era town what it means to be human.
