Martyn Blunden celebrates successful day with Waterstones

Children's author Martyn Blunden had a fantastic day with the team at Waterstones in Worthing on 29th October celebrating the publication of his new book Charlie Green and The Pirate's Treasure.

Martyn took along all the artefacts he's collected (and which served as inspiration for his pirate adventure!) to the event to illustrate Charlie Green's journey back in time to find pirates and, not surprisingly, the flintlock pistol held the greatest fascination. All the children had a chance to hold it and see how it worked, which proved a big hit!

Speaking about the event Martyn explained, "I really enjoyed chatting and discussing with them how they all worked; the gimballed compass and marine sundial were also particularly handed with interest."

One copy of Charlie Green and The Pirate's Treasure was going to be making an especially long journey, all the way to Fife in Scotland, as the little girl who bought it was in Worthing visiting relatives. We hope everyone enjoys reading about Charlie's adventures!
