Charlie Green and the Knights of the Round Table
by Martyn Blunden

There can be few children who would not like to have some method of magical transport that could take them anywhere in history and a many may choose to visit the time of knights in shining armour, castles and enchanted lands, where mystical happenings lurk in good and evil forms.

Charlie is the epitome of kindness behind a cheeky smile and he seeks to find the truth and put right the wrongs of history, and this time it is to save Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table from self-destruction. Some long lost parchments bring to his attention a confession by Merlin, the great wizard and advisor to King Arthur, a revelation of treachery within Camelot that dispel the millennia old lies that Sir Lancelot betrayed his beloved king.

The general myths that surround the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are easy to find, but when proof in the form of written parchments, dating from the sixth century, are discovered, history will have to be re-written. The old man in the museum who confided in Charlie has no knowledge of the boy's opportunity to make good use of the information by trying to warn King Arthur about it.

Charlie knows little of the ways of the century he chooses to visit and the difficulty he will have in persuading someone to listen to him. The answer is locked away on the magical Isle of Avalon, but first he has to get past the protectors of the island. Of which there are many, entrusted with total protection of its secrets.

Martyn’s aircraft guides are among the best sellers in their category and used by students to enhance their understanding of the workings of an aeroplane from a non-technical perspective. The local paper the Shoreham Herald was the first to run a feature on Martyn and his book Charlie Green and The Pirate’s Treasure on 31st March, shortly followed by the Inside magazine.

Currently Martyn is working on building a collection of antiques to illustrate his story and create interest during school visit presentations that he intends to deliver to years 5 & 6 and 7 & 8. During his work as a teacher of Flying Instructors he often uses The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, as an example of the best way to teach children – or for that matter any age – that keeps the interest going throughout. Amongst other things they will be able to handle a true antique flintlock pistol with possibly some provenance to pirates!

Book Signing at Shoreham Beach Dreams Friday 24th June

Very successful book signing event at Waterstones in Worthing Saturday 29th October. Met loads of lovely people and the artifact collection drew in much attention.

A hearty round of applause from an attentive audience of around 90 pupils from yrs 7 - 10 at St Andrews school in Worthing was a good end to Martyn's lecture on Monday 23rd Jan. Of course many of the boys wanted to try out holding the flintlock pistol - just one of the exhibits on display to help illustrate Charlie Green and The Pirate's Treasure.

Martyn's new book Charlie Green and The Underground Railroad published on May 28th has received some great reviews. The delicate handling of the slavery issue during the mid-1800's in America within a children's adventure novel has been well received. It tells of Charlie's plan to travel to the period and help Harriet Tubman free her sister from slavery. More too is revealed about the special relationship between Oliver and Emilie - owner of the peculiar emporium.
