Sinopsis: Age range: From 6 (for sharing) to 10 (independent readers)
You think you know trouble? Uh-uh. Meet Charlie.
Charlie is small and pongy and old ladies love him. Oh, and he'll also bring an airport to a standstill, spark a hospital riot and send his parents bananas - and all with a cheeky grin.
Big sister Harriet can't stand it anymore. It's time the world knew the truth. She's ready to dish the dirt.
Treasure: it's construction chaos and Charlie is enjoying every moment. When Grandad's war medals go missing there's only one suspect - but the recovery operation turns up something that might just get Charlie off the hook...
Flying: Charlie is wearing a stranger's underwear as a hat before they've even checked in, and there's inflight antics with smelly cheese and a snoring passenger. But even Mum can't turn the other cheek when Charlie disappears into the hairy arms of a baggage handler.
Water slide: Hotel pranks, bubbles in the jacuzzi, poolside swapsies... it's all a bit of fun, right? Try telling that to Dad (once he's found his swimming trunks).
With these plus four more tales to tell, Harriet is on a roll. But is this young storyteller quite as blameless as she makes out?
Cheeky Charlie is the first chapter book in this new series. Packed with 'that's me!' moments, it's ideal for bedtime stories or newly confident readers. If your child likes it when everything falls to pieces they'll love these warm family adventures. Perfect for ages 6+.
NEWSFLASH: Book 2 - Cheeky Charlie: Bugs and Bananas is also out now. The chaos continues - and includes the offer of a full-length personalized Cheeky Charlie eBook for your child.
How did Charlie come to life?
I grew up reading brilliant sibling stories such as The Adventures of Jeremy James and My Naughty Little Sister. But antics that seemed outrageous back then - such as eating a secret slice of birthday cake in the pantry - just didn't cut it with my young children. So I invented Charlie.
Tell me about Charlie's family.
These stories are told by Harriet, Charlie's eight-year-old sister. She's at that brilliant stage when friends matter but family comes first and Dad's jokes are still funny (sometimes). I wanted an older sibling's perspective on Charlie's adventures and for her character to shine through, too. It's important to me that Charlie gets into trouble because he's full of curiosity, with maybe just a dash of mischief: he's not malicious, or horrid. At heart, these are stories about a loving, slightly dysfunctional family and the type of escapades that children and parents will recognise and enjoy.
Who will enjoy Cheeky Charlie?
They're short stories which makes them ideal to share with children aged 6+. But Charlie is also aimed at older readers too: a "grown-up", funny book that kids can read on their own.
From the Author:
When a child pushes you right to the edge, when you find yourself begging for bedtime to arrive so you can seek sweet oblivion in the bath/bed/fridge (delete as appropriate), you could be forgiven for wondering if anything good will come out of it. That's what I did, and still do - and times like these became the inspiration for Charlie.
But in a break from reality, Charlie's never malicious. He's usually smiling. And, like his sister, he's full of the best intentions. They come across the occasional wrong'un, of course, but I think there are quite enough horrid people in the real world without making them our heroes - especially at an age when jelly is still the best pudding in the world.
