Bash and the Pirate Pig Review and GIVE AWAY

"For Stupid reasons that weren't my fault, I was tried, convicted, and sentenced to a summer with my wacko cousin Bash on the Farm of Doom."

I was sent an adorable book to review. Bash and the Pirate Pig is a great book for the tween age group. It is listed as Juvenile Fiction and it is perfect. It is a good mix of Christian principles and storyline that isn't an 'in your face' Christian message that seems forced. I recommend this book for any tween looking for a good read. Boy or girl, they will love this book!


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.

I loved the Boxcar Children books and the Ramona books. I don't know what my actual favorite was because I loved so many of them!!
