I’m bursting with excitement as I write this update about Brea’s timely project, the city’s 1st children’s book featuring historic icon Charlie’s Clock aka "Charlie the Clock" in time travel – celebrating 100 years in Brea!

    Charlie the Clock as drawn by Illustrator, Heather Ashlyn Collins, 2006 BOHS grad and recent CSUF grad.

      Not only will this whimsy book serve as a learning tool in getting children interested in history, but also it will inspire the young at heart!

        Team "Charlie the Clock" is an independent project consisting of three book team members, community collaboration for book sub-projects, along with a whole lot of support from educators, and people in the the City of Brea and beyond! Thank you all!

          There will be community book characters such as many BOUSD grade school children! How cute is that!

            The book team members:

              Teresa Hampson author of Brea: Celebrating 75 Years is the author.

                Heather Ashlyn Collins, 2006 BOHS and recent CSUF grad, who drew Charlie the Clock caricature, is the illustrator

                  And I am serving as the creative director and production manager.

                    When completed, we hope you will enjoy it and treasure it for years to come, as its takes a village and patience in producing a noteworthy wonderful project.

                      Team "Charlie the Clock" magical details to come soon!
