WHAT'S FOR LUNCH, CHARLEY by Margaret Hodges

Email this review


Some days start off just right--- like the day little Charley Rivers got through all his morning chores, made it to school on time (with his lunch box) and later worked up enough courage to ""shop"" in the exclusive stores of the King Charles hotel. Other days are wrong from the very start -- like the day Charley forgot his lunch box, discovered the selfish traits of a beautiful classmate, Rosabelle, and wound up as a patron of the King Charles dining room with a tab he couldn't pay. Here is a true-to-seven-years-of-life adventure story that all of Charley's contemporaries will delight in and understand simply because it could happen to any one of them. And sandwiched in between all the laughter and excitement are some important lessons for the reader as well as Charley.
