Flikity's Red Box

Audrey Fortescue

Onion Custard Kids




Flikitys Red Box is the second in the 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 other family members, on an exciting magical adventure.

In this second book, Flikity and Opin were playing with their magic boxes when Flikity opened a red one and found red skis and boots inside. She goes on an exciting skiing adventure with her Daddy and her Uncle Ben. They experience gondolas and chair lifts and meet some special rescue dogs before returning home tired and happy in time 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.

David Morgan. Educational Psychologist. from Wales. Children deserve the opportunity to read enjoyable stories that do not talk down to them. This series of books provides that opportunity. The stories are enjoyable with a sense of anticipation which leaves young readers wanting to find out what happens next. They progress in reading difficulty from red to blue and then yellow but they can be read in any order. I would definitely provide these books to young children who are developing as readers.
