Charlotte and the Mysterious Vanishing Place

Author and military vet Charles A. Salter released another of his children's books from the Kare Kids Adventures. The second book in the series, Charlotte and the Mysterious Vanishing Place (Outskirts Press, Ages 8-12).

Featuring strong, independent and responsible characters, the book teaches kids (and their parents) the importance of independent-thinking in real world situations. Charles makes sure that each story shuns magic or superheroes and instead focuses on mysteries with true explanations.

About the Book:One day, nine-year-old Charlotte has two surprises—she notices a patch of the forest slowly vanishing and discovers a lost puppy caught in a bramble bush.  She rescues it and takes it home. Returning to the woods, she notes the sinking area getting wider and deeper. Her parents and the authorities caution her to stay away, but Charlotte worries the sinking will allow other puppies to escape the kennel and get lost, too. When another puppy escapes and becomes trapped in the now enormous sinkhole,  Charlotte can find no one else to help it. As a fierce rainstorm arises, and the fallen tree the pups cling to begins to disappear through the opening at the center of the sinkhole, she realizes it is up to her to save the pups.

Can she rescue the pups and get out herself before the giant sinkhole swallows everything?
