Charlie Takes An Adventure

“As my second grade class, heard “Charlie Takes an Adventure” read by the author, they were so engaged with the unique Florida storyline. These eight year olds wanted more Charlie book adventures and even asked if it will become a movie!!”

Judith L. Boll, 2nd Grade Teacher                                                                                                            Palm Beach County, Florida


“I love the storyline!”



“Charlie takes and Adventure is a great book! I love the storyline! It gives a great message: saying that you can travel all over the world; looking for happiness, trying to figure out who you are and what really makes you happy. But, it turns out that what makes Charlie happy is that he belongs right at home. So Charlie comes back home. The moral of the story is, sometimes you have to go on a little adventure to figure out that everything you were searching for was actually at home all along. The author of this book, Haley Marguerite Mariano, is an inspiring woman because she is very driven and motivated to be the best she can be. She’s determined to chase after her dreams and make her dreams come true. She wants to someday be a public speaker, where she can inspire many people and change lives by sending a message to many. She has a lot going for her, and she is going to be very successful someday and inspire many in the future!”

~ Jamie Steinberg, College student ~


“As a former elementary school secretary, I was excited to read a book by a local author. The hope-filled story line and vivid illustrations had me flipping the pages for more. But it is the moral of the story that tied it together. In the end, Charlie made a very important discovery. He learned that no matter how far we search or travel to follow our dreams, if could be that we have more than we could ever had hoped for within our own hearts.”

~Diane Vernitsky Jellen~


“Aiden Can’t get enough of Charlie! This book not only had a great message but my five year old just wanted to stay up and keep reading it over and over! Every night since we purchased our signed copy he grabs it to read before bed and he has even used his own imagination and planned out Charlie’s next adventure to a toy store. I am so glad we bought an extra book for our nephew too!”

~Kelly DiBona~


“Beautifully written with equally stunning artwork. Charlie’s story is one a lot of us out there can relate to: seeking adventure and excitement. Truly a magical, refreshing and heart-warming story!

Beautifully written with equally stunning artwork. A wonderful gift for this holiday season!”

Charlie faces the obstacles that we all face in life, no matter the age. The gorgeous, whimsical illustrations and heartfelt story are a win-win for every child! I would even recommend it for adults!
