This fourth book in the Charlie Small series continues the comical, action-filled escapades of the young British hero, but the non-linear flow of the story can be confusing to young readers. Charlie repeatedly announces that he is in a new predicament, then backtracks to tell us how he got there. Sometimes he'll even backtrack in the middle of a flashback, which gets as convoluted as it sounds. Other than that, it's still a lot of fun, and the diagrams at least help explain how certain situations work out. Maybe the diagrams should include a timeline! Better yet, keep it linear for this age group.
