Charlie is inventive, creative, smart and perceptive. With an (almost) scientific approach, she knows how to solve great mysteries. With a curiosity about how things work exactly – and how you actually KNOW that it works that way – she devises all kinds of experiments. And luckily, she has her long-haired guinea pig Puma by her side to consult from time to time or help with her ‘research’.
Charlie encourages children to be curious about how the world around them actually works. Naturally, if you want to understand something, you can ask your parents, but will you get the answer you want? With creative and problem-solving thinking, children can figure out a lot of things for themselves, and Charlie shows this ‘in person’.
