Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” gets a children’s book called “Charlie the Choo Choo”

in Artwork, Merchandise, Movies & TV, Television

It’s refreshing to see horror written for children, amid the Halloween season and all the recent hype over the season premiere of The Walking Dead (several parents groups complaining that it was too graphic).

This particular horror is by the master himself, Stephen King (under the pseudonym of Beryl Evans).  Yes worrisome parents, this IS a children’s book; a very special children’s book.  Charlie the Choo Choo is the book that Dark Tower character Jake Chambers purchases when he visits the Manhattan Restaurant for the Mind.

Charlie the Choo Choo is written by “celebrated author” Beryl Evans and illustrated by Ned Dameron.  This slice of the Badlands from the Dark Tower is fully “endorsed” by King himself “If I were to write a children’s book, it would be just like this!”
endorsementEngineer Bob has a secret: His train engine, Charlie the Choo-Choo, is alive…and also his best friend. From celebrated author Beryl Evans and illustrator Ned Dameron comes a story about friendship, loyalty, and hard work. – Amazon
