"I, Paris Nowlin, am a writer and an artist. I have been drawing since I was 4 years old. My favorite character was Spiderman. He inspired me to draw because I loved his character. I would draw Spiderman over and over again. When my drawings started coming together, I branched out into other heroes and portrait drawings. I created my own characters and put them into books. Charlie is one of my first characters. I hope you enjoy him as much as I have with creating him."

"Charlie’s Search for a Playmate is a fun and educational coloring book that introduces several learning concepts that are engaging and age appropriate. Having taught preschool for 5 years and also having two daughters of my own, I wish that this series was around when my girls were younger and when I taught. I am looking forward to seeing what adventures Charlie goes on in future editions of this book! I would definitely recommend this to any parent or educator for personal use or for use in the classroom!!!"-- Deanna Simmons, M.A.(Parent)
