This is a
fairground storybook for children.
From the back cover:
"Who is Charlie Chaindrive? Charlie
is a lorry that travelled around the West Country fairgrounds and
belonged to my grandfather, Richard Townsend, who purchased him new
"Underneath his chassis, Charlie
has two large chains which drive his rear wheels; hence his name,
"I used to ride in this lorry when
I was a little girl and now I'm taking Charlie on adventures, so
children will love him just the same as I did."
The book contains three lovely
bedtime stories about Charlie's adventures on the fairground.
