Charlie and His Buddies
Charlie Stays up Late
by N.J. Erakat

Charlie the Steam Train and his buddies are all hard-working Trains. A party is going to be set up because they are such hard workers. With all the excitement Charlie could not sleep but his buddies did. Charlie stayed up all night. The next morning Charlie was so tired that during the party he moved out of the way, closed his eyes, and went to sleep. When Charlie woke up the party was over and he was sad.

N.J. Erakat is an Information Security Engineer and has worked in the Information Technology field for nearly 15 years. He wrote this book for his children. He has twin boys and has always wanted to teach them life lessons. Teaching younger children can be difficult, so N.J. Erakat decided to write stories.
