Charlie Small: The Puppet Master's Prison

Charlie Small: The Puppet Master's Prison

Summary

FIRST PUBLISHED AS: THE PUPPET MASTER

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. Now, a third instalment has been tracked down and salvaged from beneath the seat of a bus shelter in Pimlico.

Having finally escaped from the perfidious pirates, Charlie travels through icy waters and hair-raising mountains and encounters man-eating bats, a wolf whose bark is worse than his bite, and ultimately finds himself ensnared by the evil Puppet Master, a figure of pure unadulterated evil. Will Charlie manage to escape his clutches, or will he remain a puppet for ever, never to adventure again?
