‘Charlie’s Ark’ written by Mike Payne, Illustrated by Adam Prescott and Mike Payne is a collection of stories following the events and adventures Charlie has with the magical new ark he’s inherited from his grandmother. There’s 24 different stories, all written in rhyme and based at different times of the year, making this a brilliant book to come back to again and again. Each poetic story has a soothing rhyme that would make this a great selection of bedtime stories. The soft pastel colours and the shorter length of each story also help to make this a brilliant bedtime read either for younger children to listen to, or older and more confident readers to read for themselves. Beautiful illustrations and beautiful stories. I think that this book will really appeal to young children.

Charlie's Ark is a collection of stories about a five year old boy and his toy box ark which contain many animals which magically come to life when he whispers a secret Wordspell . Engaging, charming and a moral within every story together with beautiful illustrations, this book is a delight. Created and written by award winning artist Mike Payne who is also the creator and original artist of the grey blue-nosed bear Tatty Teddy .
Classics, children's classics in particular, endure because a child's soul inherently recognises a communion we adults only faintly remember. Story telling is an art. Story writing is a craft. What has been collectively accomplished here is the gem at the pinnacle of the creative crown - inspiration. Magic has been created here.
