Review: Bash and the Pirate Pig by:Burton Cole

Bash and the Pirate Pig
About the Book:
Written for boys 8 to 14, Bash and the Pirate Pig is the story of a cranky city kid named Raymond “Beamer” Boxby who must spend summer vacation at his younger cousin Bash Hinglehobb’s farm.

Beamer prefers air conditioning and video games. He can’t see what good can come of this so-called country fun that includes riding cows, river rafting with a pig, or playing with skunks.

But hang tight, Beamer, because Bash’s zany adventures with his "Fishin' and Farmin' book" (The Bible) just might lead to the coolest Discovery of all.


About the Author:
Burton Cole is a Pulitzer Prize nominated journalist with thirty years of experience and more than fifty humor writing awards to his credit. He grew up on a farm in northeast Ohio and attended a smalltown church with a slew of cousins and buddies. That same boyhood inspires his colorful stories today.
My Review:
 Bash and the Pirate Pig , is a very sweet book not only for children but for adults as well. The comical writing had me chuckling the whole way through. Raymond "Beamer" Boxby is a city kid, couch potato that hates anything besides chips and video games. He isn't too thrilled with the idea of spending the summer with his cousin Sebastian nicknamed Bash. But his parents are too concerned with his lazy attitude, so to try to revive him, they send him to Uncle Rollie and Aunt Tillie's farm for boyhood adventure.

 I love Bash's sense of adventure. He reminds me alot of my boys and all the mischief they get into on a daily basis. The writing in Bash and the Pirate Pig is very zany and quirky. And it is sure to inspire your children as well. Bash has always got a new invention sure to knock your socks off. Come along and join Bash and Beamer as they embark on a journey together during a summer they will never forget.
