Took Charlie Green’s first story of adventure back in time to the local Primary School recently and had a lovely day. My presentation also explored the history of telling the time as well as handling some pirate artefacts featured in the book. The children also got involved in a demonstration of how a sundial worked with the tallest child representing the sun! With careful handling several of them got the chance to feel the weight of a real cutlass a pirate may have used to fight with while others fired the flintlock – obviously unloaded! They learnt a little of the magic aeroplane used in Charlie’s adventures – an old De Havilland biplane from the 1930’s – found abandoned in an old hangar when the family moved into a house next to a disused airfield. As most of the children already knew I am a pilot as well as author, there were many questions about flying too!
