Charlie Napier
The poet, Donald Campbell has written a poem inspired by this character by Holt:

Charlie Napier

Charlie Napier loves to swing
in time with every song he'll sing.
Tapping his toes and smacking his lips
bending his knees and shaking his hips,
his rhythm runs through everything.

So playfully he sways and skips!
The concertina that he grips
is very nearly made to sing
as sweet as any bell might ring.
There's music in his finger tips.

Charlie is such an entertaining sight,
Singing and swinging in sheer delight!
