*Giveaway and review of Bash and the Pirate Pig

Published by: BH Kids
Story by: Burton W. Cole
Illustrated by: Tom Bancroft

I was pretty excited to receive Bash and the Pirate Pig to read and review… I ended up all the more excited by the time I finished the book.



The story:

This book tells the tale of a city kid who is sent to stay with his cousin as his aunt and uncle’s farm. There, he and his cousin get into a lot of country-ish trouble together.

The illustrations:

The front and back cover of this book are filled with colorful and fun pictures. At the beginning of each chapter, in the inside, there is a fun, black and white picture, as well.

How strong is the book?

This is a nice and sturdy hardcover.

Who the book is for:

I would recommend this book for ages eight through teen, but I even enjoyed it a bit as an adult.

What I liked:

There is so much that I liked…

I really loved the message! It was mixed in with a good story and subtle enough that kids will read the book, even if they aren’t otherwise open to Christianity.

The illustrations are so awesome!

The story is fun and funny.

Easy to read.

What I didn’t like:

Some might be offended by the name calling and gross humor - I wasn’t, but I know that some don’t like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books for similar reasons.

My conclusion:

I absolutely love this book! I am so excited to use it as a witnessing tool with preteens. So fun and entertaining, that they won’t even know I am preaching at them.

I give Bash and the Pirate Pig 5 out of 5 stars.
