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.

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.

I bought some copies as presents and all the parents who have read them to their children have told me the children loved them. Some comments: "The children especially liked the bright pictures." Two brothers who had the story for the first time on a Monday at bedtime, chose it again on the Tuesday. "The big text is great and good for our older one to read."

Brilliant story Great book, my 2 year old daughter loves it. It's the longest book she'll happily read all the way through so I'm sure she'll still enjoy it for years to come. I expect it will be perfect when she's learning to read too.
