In this book 2 of a series, Charlie is making his way through the school year. He faces the prospect of acting as a Nice Gnome in his class play, which he would do, and does, just about anything to get out of. Charlie also must face his daily dreaded chore of walking his dog Ginger.
Will Charlie learn to overcome those requirements in his life that he must do, with as good attitude?
Again, an unmarked series! This is not a read alone, I really hate it when publishers do this! However, I really like this series, and the artwork is so great! I feel like Charlie is a really authentic character who is going through is day to day life, but the author creates such an interesting read out of the mundane, that it’s an excellent read. I love how Charlie doesn’t always to do the right thing and sometimes gets himself into unexpected predicaments. I look forward to the next book in this series.
