'A warm and lively story told in John's relaxed and conversational style' --Lucy Land --Essex Life Magazine
This book started as part of John Harris's repertoire as a storyteller and now appears in print, written, as one might expect, in a witty conversational style. It is enhanced by humorous illustrations from Tom Morgan-Jones in ink and flat saturated colour. Expectation is fulfilled and confounded in turn as Charlie loses his house key in a series of madcap incidents. This small press dedicated to Harris's own work is to be congratulated on its enterprise..... this will be enjoyed by newly confident readers and will be a good addition to school library shelves. --The School Librarian
From the Publisher
A touching, heartwarming beautifully illustrated and very funny story which appeals to a wider than usual age range for a children`s book:
5 year olds right through to ten year olds love this book!
Charlie`s Key is John Harris`s first book. His next, which will be available in October 2006, is his retelling of the stories of Icarus and Theseus entitled
'The Palace of Puzzles'.

This book was apparently inspired by another school he visits regularly and both my kids love it. It`s a warm and touching story which appeals for different reasons to 5 year olds and 9 year olds (as mine are) and presumably everyone in between as well. It`s very funny, slightly off the wall and at the same time quite a moral story without being preachy. Now that I come to write this review I realise it`s quite a hard story to sum up - it`s not really like anything else I can think of to compare it to, which I know probably isn`t much help - just buy it and see for yourself, you`ll love it, I promise!
