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.

My seven year old daughter and I started a wonderful tradition over the summer and this book couldn’t have come at a better time! We decided to take turns reading chapter books together every night before bed. When I read the description to Bash and the Pirate Pig, I just knew it would be the kind of book she would truly enjoy. Adventure, animals, and humor… everything she would love in a book! I was not wrong in my assumption and she immediately fell in love with this great book and looked forward to our reading time together. This is such a great book to read and I highly recommend it if you have a child 8 and older, they won’t be disappointed!
Now for the exciting part! One person will have the chance to win their very own copy of Bash and the Pirate Pig!
