CHARLIEWhen RAF search and rescue pilot Matt Prosser deployed to the Falkland Islands, he packed his notepad and sketchbook and created an enchanting book, Charlie and the Dragon, so he could give something special to his nephew.

He was persuaded to publish his rhyming story about Charlie, a boy with flaming red hair who wakes to find a small dragon called Ember in his sock drawer. She is crying because she became lost in bad weather and can’t find her mum, so the pair set off into the countryside to get Ember home. Order your copy at
