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),

No one knows the full story of Charlie Small. At least, not yet. His original battered journal was found washed up on a remote, windswept shore in the north of England.

This second volume was found encased in ice, high on a glacial plateau in the Himalayas. It details even more remarkable deeds and thrilling acts aboard the Jolly Roger with the dastardly lady-pirates of perfidy - and a lot more besides.

* Daily Telegraph * Should prove irresistible to readers of seven and upward * The Bookseller * My seven year old couldn't put it down * The School Librarian * 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 *

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
