User Review  - Rosa.Mill - LibraryThing

This is one of those circular tales where Charlie reads about someone, who reads about someone else, who reads about someone else that keeps going until you swing back around to Charlie. I liked that magazines and books were included. Many of the choices made me smile. Read full review

Very colourful, beautifully illustrated.
