Charlie Joe Jackson’s Guide to Not Growing Up

Charlie Joe Jackson, #6

Written by Tommy Greenwald, Illustrated by J.P. Coovert

Charlie Joe Jackson does not want the responsibilities that come with growing up. Charlie wants to have fun! That is until Teddy enters the picture. Teddy has been Charlie’s archenemy for as long as he can remember. Teddy is a bit outgoing and tends to make impulsive choices that cause a bit of trouble, like wanting to disturb someone’s belongings as a joke, getting scared of a little puppy, and ending up in the pool. Books and all. Charlie seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, ending up in the pool too. Teddy’s antics help Charlie see that life is not all fun and games. Charlie seems to find trouble around every corner, or is it that trouble finds him… Charlie may not want to grow-up, may not want the fun to end, maybe just maybe he will discover a way to enjoy all that comes with growing-up.
