The Incredible Martin O’Shea is the story of a first-grader with an great imagination. He imagines himself saving the day in all kinds of outstanding roles – a doctor, a firefighter, a detective, a NASA engineer, a deep-sea explorer… He finds his daydreams so much more interesting than the real world that he doesn’t pay attention in school. His grades begin to fall, and his parents are not happy about it. Then a visitor to his class says something that changes his life. Martin learns that education can help him make his dreams reality, and he learns to want to pay attention in class. The lesson in this book shows how imagination plus learning can lead to real life adventures and encourages kids to pay attention in school.

Don Winn is the premier author and creator of Cardboard Box Adventures (CBA), an independent boutique publisher focusing on books that are designed to inspire children’s imaginations and encourage parents and children to read aloud together and to talk about what they’ve read. CBA’s offerings currently include nine picture books for ages 4-8 as well as the first novel in a six-book series planned for grades 3 and up. The name, Cardboard Box Adventures, comes from one of Don's favorite childhood activities: playing with a big, empty cardboard box. The box could be anything he imagined it to be...a rocket ship, a submarine, a fort, a tent, a cave...the possibilities were endless. And so through his light-hearted stories, Don Winn hopes to encourage children to use and develop their imagination in many ways. Because although imaginary childhood adventures are a wonderful beginning, it's also true that continuing to foster imagination in children helps them to learn and grow, to solve problems, and to become more empathetic and compassionate adults.
