32 page picture book by Sam Peel & Ben Cashmore.

An informative children's book about Charlie, a chimp, armed with a camera who loves to study the jungles more peculiar animals.

The story follows Charlie, an inquisitive chimp armed with a camera who loves to study the jungles more peculiar animals. Our polaroid taking primate will lead you through the treetops, the rivers, even the darkest places in the jungle to show you the wonderful creatures that live there and the things that make them so unique. Charlie’s journey however has him wondering about his own special features and if in fact, he has any?

I've always been fascinated by peculiar animals and love illustrating my favourites. As I drew more and more, I needed a way to bring all these creatures together. This is when the first version of Charlie's story was born. A kids book that tells you all the wonderful things about the weirder jungle creatures. I then enlisted Ben Cashmore to help me to write this story. After creating a compelling character, finding facts, writing rhymes and discovering the all important moral of the story we had ourselves a book!

Through Kickstarter, we aimed to raise enough money to print our first run, a figure that we hit on the first day of the campaign, and over the course of the next 30 days doubled. This allowed us to print a larger run and print more cool additions, including real Polaroids of the characters.
