Charlie Palmer Says


Ten-year-old Nathan Clark is stunned when he dashes outside on Christmas Day to use his new metal detector and finds himself faced with a ghost called Charlie Palmer. But he soon promises to do all he can to help Charlie when he discovers that his near neighbours, the Kimbles, were Charlie’s killers and are about to carry out an armed raid.

When Nathan’s parents go away for the weekend leaving his no-nonsense big sister in charge, the family jewels are stolen and Charlie instantly gets the blame. The police are decidedly sceptical when Nathan tells them the truth that Charlie revealed to him. The only person listening is French scientist Monsieur Dupont, the one hundred and twenty-eight year old former owner of Nathan’s house.

Will Nathan be able to save the day or will he end up the same way as Charlie?

I will be signing copies of 'Charlie Palmer Says' at Woodbridge Emporium Bookstore, Suffolk on Sunday 8th December 2019 and at W H Smith's in Ipswich on Saturday 18th January 2020. Both sessions will be from 11.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.

This book I find very well written, since the first page you can dive deep into the storyline. I also liked the cover very well. It is nice designed in the color and in the design itself. The writing style is very good and very pleasant and fluently to read. The book has been very clearly structured and the plot is traceable and very interesting. The characters look very authentic and traceable to me. The author succeeds in writing very detailing about the scenery, characters, surroundings and emotions. This story is fascinating and consistent at the same time and keeps the tension until the end.

A great story. Very well written and enjoyable.

by Derek V

A very well written and satisfying debut children’s novel from Beverley Bowry. I found the style of writing particularly engaging with well rounded characters and every part of the plot skilfully explained. I believe the book will leave the reader eager to reach the end to learn of the fate of Charlie and Nathan.
The gentle narrative style of “Charlie Palmer Says” is reminiscent of Enid Blyton’s “Famous Five”, an era where children would take on seemingly dangerous roles but always emerge relatively unscathed but wiser for the experience.
I would thoroughly recommend “Charlie Palmer Says” for an enjoyable and exciting read for young people.
