he seems to meet with adventures From being delivered with a pizza, to surfing on a ray, to getting into a tizz at the hospital, he manages to emerge unscathed every time But what happens when he is carried off by a magpie or lost in deep snow And, when Sam himself is in trouble, of what use can such a tiny friend such as Charlie actually be This is a sequel to Mr Charlie Chumpkins, also available on Kindle A Great Book For School Age ChildrenSam is a very nice kid growing up in England, attending grade school, having the kind of adventures that lots of boys have at his age and enjoying them So much so in fact that if this book were only about Sam and his adventures at school, going camping, at the theme park, at the beach, in winter storms, or when his grandmother and her

England, attending grade school, having the kind of adventures that lots of boys have at his age and enjoying them So much so in fact that if this book were only about Sam and his adventures at school, going camping, at the theme park, at the beach, in winter storms, or when his grandmother and her nasty cat come for a visit, it would be quite an entertaining story But when you add Mr Charlie Chumpkins to those adventures the story becomes magical Charlie is a little man who, because of the curse of a nasty witch, has been shrunk so much that he can fit into the palm of Sam s hand Through a series of mishaps, Charlie ends up in a bottle that Sam finds in a field, brings home, throws under his bed, and soon forgets But Charlie is enterprising, to say the least, and he has a spirit of adventure So, Charlie just moves into an equally forgotten toy garage that s under Sam s bed too That s where the boy finds him Charlie and Sam become fast friends Sam manages to keep Charlie s presence a secret through the whole book, andimportantly he makes Charlie part of all those interesting adventures I mentioned But those adventures arecomplex, compelling, andfun, because the plucky, daring, but always gentlemanly and polite Charlie is a part of them Author Helen Laycock does a wonderful job telling the story through Sam s voice And she makes sure that every outing that he and Charlie have takes an interesting twist that will keep young readers or listeners entertained and amazed This may be of interest to the target audience, but it doesn t warrant reading for anyone over eight, I m afraid Both the sequence of events I hesitate to ennoble them with the term plot and the writing style suggest a novelization of events in a comic strip, rather than a considered work of art I m a huge fan of children s books, and would rather read a great book for kids than a merely good book for adults E.B White, Diana Wynne Jones, E.L Konigsburg are all favourites but I m afraid This may be of interest to the target audience, but it doesn t warrant reading for anyone over eight, I m afraid Both the sequence of events I hesitate to ennoble them with

recommendation engine suggested I purchase this one, but they got it sadly wrong.Perfect for slow readers as the chapters are tiny who are undemanding about niceties like characterization, world building, or surprise If you have a child that gets the giggles when someone trips and falls, they may well warm to the many scrapes poor Charlie finds himself in Note 5 stars rare and amazing, 4
