The Lovereading4Kids comment

An exciting series of unusual escapades are noted by Charlie Small in his journals as one hectic adventure follows another. Charlie’s adventures start ordinarily enough when his Mum forces him to leave his computer game and go out to play. Charlie sets out to do some exploring and soon finds the local stream has turned into a fast flowing river full of savage crocodiles… From then on, Charlie can take nothing for granted as everything around him has changed.

Charlie is only eight years old but his journey takes him 400 years into the past and it requires all his courage and skill to get back to the present. Full of high octane excitement, this is a fabulous adventure series charting the many surprises that Charlie has to deal with as he tries to return from his first unplanned and unpredictable journey. Imaginations will run riot with every single one of these titles.

Titles in the series: Gorilla City (1st), Pirate Galleon (2nd),The Puppet Master’s Prison (3rd), Destiny Mountain (4th), The Underworld (5th), Frostbite Pass (6th), The Mummy’s Tomb (7th), The Forest of Skulls (8th)

Synopsis

Charlie Small: The Forest of Skulls by Charlie Small

Whisked away by his old adversaries, the Perfumed Pirates of Perfidy, Charlie is put to work aboard their new galleon. Held captive and forced to raid an unsuspecting ship with the bloodthirsty crew, Charlie is sure things can't get much worse... Until the pirates spot an enormous blunt-headed, sharp-toothed whale.
