Charleton's Purpose is a children's book about a snail that's told he's too slow to have a job.

     A joy for children of all ages. Charleton's Purpose, at its core, is an imaginative, delightful story about overcoming challenges. Everyone in the kingdom has a purpose and now Charleton wants one too. Join the determined little snail and the creatures he meets on his grand adventure to find his purpose. A story any child will love to read over and over for years to come.

PLOT

     All the creatures in the kingdom tell Charleton he's too slow to have a purpose. At first Charleton doesn't know what to do, but with a little help and determination, he finds out that it's because he's so slow, that he's the only one with enough patience to discover his purpose. Join him on his adventure!

WHO is making this book?

     My name is Kevin Ferreira and I'm the creator of Charleton's Purpose. I'm an artist from Connecticut that's been in art shows across the country and I've worked on numerous art projects over the years. I've made books about my artwork before and believe it's time for Charleton to be released into the world because it's a story that everyone can enjoy! Check out more of my work at my website.
