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),

Reviews

A delightful adventure-packed story . . . Full of wonderful maps, sketches, and notes, this title is the first in what promises to be a highly entertaining series * Through the Looking Glass * Exciting set-piece scenes. Charlie's scrapes and escapes are mapped step by step, like a good action stunt, with a balance of detail and pace. Production quality is also excellent * TES * My seven year old couldn't put it down * The School Librarian * Should prove irresistible to readers of seven and upward * The Bookseller * Buccaneering boys

* Daily Telegraph *
