Charles loved books. He loved girls & music & books in that order. He finds happiness for a while working in a bookshop but it doesn't last. He confides to his friend, the writer and philosopher, that 'it would be rather nice to live inside a book.' Charles' friend promises to do what she can to help him. So begins his odyssey. A book for everyone who believes in Fairy Tales and Happy Endings.
