A gentle story of a young boy with an unexpected destiny, Charlie becomes a hero after finding a mysterious whistle. Beginning in the seaside areas of Hayling Island and Portsmouth on the South Coast Charlie soon becomes embroiled in an attempted coup of Britain. With unexpected allies from fantasy and myth our unassuming hero even gets to meet the Queen.
John Ogden tells the story by employing the richness of the English language to evoke vivid images and atmospheric scenes.
From its description of a relatively ordinary family holiday at the beginning the reader wouldn't ever anticipate the outcome.
A great read and well researched for the historical and local facts it contains.
