Charlie P. Tinkerman: The World’s Best Inventor– If only he finished something! Storytime + Strength-finding activities

Cat Kelly • Storytelling

Charlie P. Tinkerman should be, could be, and would be the world's best inventor– if only he could finish something! His workshop is a mess, his ideas stay on the page, and Charlie can’t help but feel lost.

Inspired by the journey of every artist, maker, and business owner, Charlie’s story is a triumphant answer to the world’s worst question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Children will have time to draw inventions of their own and reflect on their own personal strengths with a craft activity.

Cat Kelly

Cat Kelly wanted to be a writer when she grew up. She loved stories, especially the ones about dragons and the princesses that slay them. While studying Journalism at Carleton University, she realized you can be many, many things when you grow up: fiction writer, business owner, public speaker, fairy godmother, and most recently, a free-spirited Yukoner.
With her first book published, Cat might be almost grown up. 

Charlie P. Tinkerman was featured on CBC, Radio Canada, and the front page of the Yukon News.
