How Three Brothers Save the Navy is the third book in the Kare Kids Adventures. Matt, 12, and his younger brothers Ryan and Jack like to play Force Recon Marines. Their interest in this game was due to their father being a Captain in the U.S. Navy. He was currently deployed on an aircraft carrier off the coast of Maryland, the state where they lived.
The boys often made "recon missions" to an abandoned airfield near their home. One day, however, they spotted skydivers using high-altitude military tactics to land on the airfield. Learning the team was not military and planned to attack a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, the boys had to outwit the enemy agents and try to get word of the impending plot to their dad. The fast action and high tension make this book an exciting read for middle graders.
Writer Charles A. Salter has written hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles, adult mystery and juvenile books, and is new pre-teen series, the Kare Kids Adventures.
