Opin’s Blue Box is the first in a series of beautifully illustrated books for 3 to 6 year old children. They are family oriented stories where the children have coloured boxes to play with. But, occasionally there is something inside a box which takes the child, and another family member, on an exciting magical adventure.
In this first book Opin finds a yacht inside his blue box and embarks on a magical journey with his grandad. They have an exciting time skimming over the waves, they have the opportunity to do a good deed and be kind to someone before returning home tired and happy and ready for bed.
The books are based on the author’s own family and their experiences. They make good bedtime stories as at the end of each book the children go to bed and say “night-night”. The stories are also valuable as early readers as they incorporate many of the first words which children learn to read.
