"The Adventures of Charlie & Moon" is a fantasy for children about a boy named Charlie who opens his birthday present the night before his ninth birthday and the consequences that follow. Moon is a young eagle who needs Charlie’s help to stop an evil toymaker from turning all the eagles and endangered species into stuffed toys. The Adventures of Charlie & Moon takes children on a wild ride through the imaginary Shire of Tumblegum to stop the evil toymaker, Skunk Weavel from achieving his wicked ways.
Kat Goddard from The New England Booksellers Association calls The Adventures of Charlie & Moon "charming... especially welcome to younger fans of the Harry Potter books... has the classic feel and lovely language of Tolkien but with plenty of contemporary bits..."
Martin Meader was the Co-Executive Producer/Co-Story Writer of the 1997 film, Paradise Road, which starred Cate Blanchett, Glenn Close, Frances McDormand and Pauline Collins. The Adventures of Charlie & Moon is in development to be a feature film.
