The Lost Diaries of Charlie Small: Gorilla City

The very first story in the Charlie Small series – Charlie Small is only twelve years old when he falls through a gap in space and time and ends up in a series of adventures which he records in a diary format. Packed full of fun illustrations, maps and clever inventions, Charlie’s first adventure takes him to Gorilla City, where he meets the mighty Thrak and must battle for survival, finally ending up as king of the jungle. No adventure is too big for Charlie Small! Will he ever get home for tea?

Thrak is a villainous gorilla from Charlie Small’s amazing first diary, GORILLA CITY. Thrak is king of the jungle and does not like the look of boy adventurer, Charlie Small… so he challenges him to an arm wrestle to see who will become King of the Jungle!

Learn how to draw Thrak here with the help of Nick Ward, curator of Charlie Small’s diaries!
