The Biting Cheese Bows Challenge
by Kathleen Thaler

Lots of Knots!

Life can be hard for a nine year old. Why? Abbey's father is in the Navy, and he goes away a lot. In this book, she and her friends must solve a SUPER DUPER TOP SECRET CHALLENGE while he is at sea. Will wrong turns and bad luck stop her? Time is running out in this nautical challenge. What should she do with the ropes?

This is the first chapter book in the 'Navy Dad' series. Intermediate readers will test their imagination and nautical know-how while enjoying short chapters, funny illustrations, and new vocabulary.

Kathleen spent 22 years driving warships in the Royal Canadian Navy, sailing on the high seas, and having adventures around the globe. She began the "Navy Dad" series as a way to help children deal with parents who are deployed with the military. She now lives in Victoria, BC with her Navy husband and her daughter, Abbey.
