The Sugar Creek Gang discovers a "disguise" hidden in a sycamore hollow. Does it belong to the bank robber hiding in the swamp? A mysterious map hidden near the tree proves to be even more exciting then the disguise. Before the adventure ends, the gang encounters the robber, helps Bill Collins welcome a new baby sister, and saves the victim of a black widow spider bite. Join Bill and the rest of the Sugar Creek Gang as they learn the lesson of "sowing" and "reaping." Recommended for ages 8 to 11.

William Jasper "Bill" Collins and his five friends are growing up in a small rural town. Bill and his friend Roy "Dragonfly" Gilbert discover a hidden disguise while out fishing one summer afternoon. The next day, police report a bank robber on the loose and possibly in the area. Bill and Dragonfly get together with their Sugar Creek Gangâ€”Little Jimmy Foote, Big Jim, Leslie "Poetry" Thompson, and Daniel "Circus" Browneâ€”to discuss what they can do about it. Mix in a missing old man from the hills, his long-lost nephew, and the resident drunk and it adds up to quite an adventure for a group of boys, all but one under the age of twelve.
Overall, this is a fun and easy read. I realize this is a Christian book, but still I think it weighs a little heavy on the preachy side. I would recommend The Swamp Robber by Paul Hutchens to any of my friends with boys or girls ages 8-12.
L. Wallo4 Stars Out Of 5March 29, 2010L. WalloCute story. I think it is similar to The Boxcar Children. Perfect for the suggested age group. It is a bit dated, I think the orginal printing date is 1940. In any event, I still think a young child will find it exciting and adventurous.
