Great, fun story! We read as a family and laughed at every page. Perfect for grade 2-5 ( and adults too :) ). Can be easily one of the books on your summer reading list.

the begining was great after a couple of pages it dragged but it got backs its story. For a child that is.

School is out for the summer and this summer Charlie's parents have decided to have a 'stay-cation' at home instead of traveling to some exotic adventurous location. How boring! But, it ends up anything but boring as Charlie and his brother go from adventure to adventure! Lots of fun! Reviewed by BPL staff IB.
