EVIL GENIUSES, MECHANICAL MONSTERS, FOREST SPRITES ... No adventure is too BIG for Charlie Small!

GADGETS, INVENTIONS, MONSTROUS CREATURES, EVIL VILLAINS... No adventure is too BIG for 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.
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 Betty Rae with the dastardly lady-pirates of perfidy - and a lot more besides.
On his way to Jakeman's factory, Charlie is grabbed by Tristram Twitch, who sends him off on three dangerous errands. Charlie must find a pearl from the giant oyster beds of the Pangaean Ocean, a diamond-encrusted tiara from a mummified corpse, and a gold quill from the back of the extremely rare golden porcupine of Mayapazan. AND he has to befriend his old enemy, Thrak the gorilla along the way!
If he doesn't succeed, Jakeman will be fed to a man-eating barracuda - and Charlie will NEVER get back home...!
Previously, Charlie had bumped into the infamous Jakeman -- but when the mad professor was dragged down into the Underworld, Charlie had to follow - otherwise, how would he discover how to get back to his mum and dad? This latest adventure takes him into an unreal darkened world, where anything is possible.
But will Charlie Small ever find a way out, or will he be trapped underground forever . . . ?
