My favorite of our books with main characters named "Opal". Opal and Seymour are brother and sister. Seymour charges a toll for Opal to get to her bedroom. When she runs out of money, she plays interestingly in her room until he can't stand being without her any more, and not only stops charging the toll, he lends her his walkie-talkie for her expedition to the North Pole. Meanwhile, her father cooks dinner and sings opera, while her mother paints. A charming family. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679867228, Hardcover)

Illustrated in full color. Siblings Seymour and Opal get along pretty well--until the day Seymour starts charging Opal five cents every time she passes through his room into hers. When Opal runs out of nickels, she decides to teach her brother a lesson--and before she's through, Seymour realizes that his sister is worth more to him than a whole piggy bank full of change. In the tradition of the best books about childhood challenges, Nicole Jussek's charming storytelling and Ana Lopéz Escrivá's adorable bunny-rabbit characters provide just the right mixture of humor and reality to show that it's more fun to be friends than foes.  

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:57 -0400)

Every time his sister Opal passes through his room to get to her own, Seymour charges her a toll; but Opal eventually teaches him a lesson.
