What is Charlie Takes an Adventure About?
An adventurous penguin named Charlie is bored in his hometown of Pickering Warf, Antarctica. Charlie has no one to play with, nothing to do, and winter lasts a really long time. Charlie sets off on a plane to Florida hoping to find the missing piece of his happiness. Throughout his journey, several events do not go as well as he had planned and hoped, leaving Charlie disappointed. As Charlie is approaching the exit of Happy World, he spots a sign that reads, “Fortune Teller – ALL wishes granted.” Charlie decides to walk down the path to pay a visit to the fortune teller… to tell her what has been going on and why he decided to leave his hometown. Enlightened by the Slovakian proverb, Charlie comes to the realization about the true meaning of life and he understands what he must do in order to be happy.

I found Daniel right out of high school at the age of 18 years old!!! It was his style, creativity and comic-like illustrations that drew me in. I knew once I saw his work and what he was capable of, I knew he would be the illustrator for Charlie Takes an Adventure. It sure was an “Adventure” interviewing several different illustrators to fill the position. It was such a joy and a pleasure to have worked with Daniel on this book. He was able to help bring “Charlie” to life!!!
