BASH and the Pirate Pig by Burton W. Cole Book Review




As a mother of 5 children and knowing how the world is today it’s nice to know that there are some great Christian based books out there for them to read. BASH and the Pirate Pig is one of them! =) When I asked my older kids if they would be interested in reading this book they definitely said “yes”.

About Bash and the Pirate Pig:
Bash and the Pirate Pig, by Burton Cole, is the story of a cranky city kid named Raymond “Beamer” Boxby who must spend summer vacation at his younger cousin, Bash’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 small-town church with a slew of cousins and buddies. That same boyhood inspires his colorful stories today.
About the Illustrator
Tom Bancroft has more than twenty years of experience in the animation and illustration industry and worked with Disney on films including Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Aladdin. Other clients have included DC Comics and Big Idea Productions.
My kids enjoyed reading this great hard cover book and they loved the characters found inside. I think my oldest agreed he was most like “Raymond” lol. They liked how there is a picture on each start of the chapters. I found out this book just isn’t for kiddos, when my children were done reading this book my husband decided to pick it up and read a few pages but now it’s almost half way through the book! =) He says it is well written, very descriptive and is a great book. I have to chuckle because I hear him laughing while reading because of the funny parts in this book. Of course I’m not going to get into telling you what the whole story is about because it would ruin it for you ;).
