Win a signed copy of the new baseball children’s book ‘Charlie Bubbles to Fenway!’
Fri 10 Oct 2014
BSUK is offering three signed copies of an exciting new baseball-themed children's book, Charlie Bubbles to Fenway!, to the winners of a baseball contest open to children and young people up to the age of 14.
Charlie Bubbles to Fenway! is the latest in a series of three Charlie Bubbles children's books written by award-winning actor, director and now author Paul Carafotes. Paul has starred alongside Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, Brad Pitt, his best friend the late James Gandolfini (Sopranos), Joe Magnelia (Criminal Minds) and many other notable actors and recently completed a major role in the upcoming feature film release The Wolves of Savin Hill.
Paul's six-year-old son Charlie, the inspiration for the books, is part British, as his mother and grandparents come from Liverpool.
The latest Charlie Bubbles book was inspired by Charlie's love for baseball and his dad’s home-town team, the Boston Red Sox. In the book, Charlie gains the courage to believe in himself in the face of adversity, and learns that dreams can come true if you really put your mind to achieving them. The book is colourful and imaginative, full of fun but with many life lessons for kids.
Paul Carafotes said: “All sports socialise children but baseball is a metaphor for life. Every pitch, you get a new chance. If you strike out, you can get a hit on your next at-bat. If you make an error on the field you have to forget about it because the next play is coming at you. Life is always coming at you and you have to be in the moment. We learn a lot about ourselves and life on the field of play. Being a single dad and devoted to my son, I spend a lot of time with him teaching him these things."
To win one of three copies of Charlie Bubbles to Fenway!, signed by Paul Carafotes, just answer this question:
“What is the name given to the left field wall at Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox?”
All entries must be received by 5.00 pm on Friday 17 October 2014.
Shortly afterwards, we will put all the entries together, mix them up and start drawing them out. The first three correct answers will win, and we will post a signed copy of Charlie Bubbles to Fenway! to each of the winners.
