Charlie is your average six year old. With one major exception. Charlie has Cystic Fibrosis and has to spend over an hour every day chained to the couch to receive his treatments. These treatments are what help him stay healthy and active, but that does not make them any less boring. He is forced to sit on the couch, while his vest pounds his chest to loosen up the extra thick, sticky mucus that builds up in his lungs. Not only does this force him to miss out on some play time with his brother and sister, it also itches like crazy! Everything changes one night when Charlie makes a wish on a shooting star. His wish is to either make it so he doesn’t have to do his treatments any more, or at least that they would be more fun. Charlie’s wish is fulfilled, but not in the way he expects. The next day a new machine arrives at his door that is about to send Charlie, his brother, and sister on the adventure of their lives.

Introducing the wonders of science with this easy to understand exploration into general relativity that begins on a backyard trampoline.

The two adorable hedgehog characters are based on real boys bearing the same names created by an inspired mom with an artsy streak and a husband who was a scientist in his previous life. Together, they have pressed pause on the American Dream and are traveling the world to write books they want their children to read. For ages 4-10.
