Acclaimed writer and cartoonist Tom Scott will be in-store at Takapuna Paper Plus signing copies of his new book 'Searching for Charlie'. This is the last opportunity to get a copy of this bestselling book signed before Christmas! Captain Charles Hazlitt Upham is the only combat soldier ever to win the Victoria Cross twice. His acts of bravery in World War II meant he probably deserved six more. The mystery of how a reserved, modest, slightly built farm valuer from New Zealand, could be so ferocious and fearless in battle has intrigued and fascinated acclaimed writer and illustrator Tom Scott ever since he read about Charles Upham as a schoolboy. ‘Searching for Charlie’ is his epic quest to unravel the “real” Charles Upham.
