Charlie Small Summary


Charlie Small: The Perfumed Pirates of Perfidy by Charlie Small

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. And at first we thought it an elaborate hoax. Surely no eight-year-old could have had so many wild adventures, witnessed so many extraordinary things, lived such an incredible life - and still only be eight. And yet ...there was something so vivid in the telling, that we were persuaded, just enough, to send the journal and some of its boggling content for analysis. The results were absolutely astonishing. And only one conclusion could be drawn. Everything in the journal of Charlie Small is true. He really has wrestled a deadly river croc, ridden a steam-powered rhino, been cabin boy for a band of desperate lady-pirates and tribal chief in a city of gorillas. And countless other things besides. And ...not only that ...even though Charlie Small is only eight, he must have lived for over six hundred years! 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. It is guaranteed to delight readers as much as Charlie's first journal. Note: At the time of writing we had just received unconfirmed reports of a third journal, found on a seat at a bus stop in Pimlico. If the diary proves to be further adventures of Charlie Small, rest assured that we will publish it very soon indeed. Meantime, do please continuing looking out for a young boy with a slightly perplexed look, a battered rucksack and an unlikely talent for swinging through trees...
