Opin's Blue Box

Onion Custard Kids




Opins 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.


Select Edition: Large Format (240mmx240mm)

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.
