Product Description

Bash, Beamer and the gang are back for the third book in the series. They'll have to deal with loose chickens running through a fire hall, a brightly painted goat, and cows who give chocolate milk. Not only all that, but there's a robber who is holding up stores and feed mills! Is it up to Beamer to face the robber - like that time God sent Gideon to face a massive army?

In the midst of all of this, Beamer and his track star friend Lauren try to puzzle out baptism when they discover The Great Commision of Jesus: Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. They already believe. With the Sunday school picnic at Lake Erie, it's time for them to say, like the guy in Acts, Look there's water! What would keep me from being baptized?

Publisher's Description

Anytime boring Beamer visits Bash, his crazy farm cousin, weirdness always rules. This time, Bash schemes a way for the cows to give chocolate milk on April Fool’s Day. Meanwhile, there's a robber on the loose, and Beamer is stuck with his crazy cousin, the pesky neighbor Mary Jane, and a goat of many colors. But somehow Beamer manages to learn an important lesson about baptism and the Great Commission. It's just another day at the farm!

Based on Matthew 16:15-16, this third book in the Bash series is hilarious fun for kids 8 to 12.

    Twelve-year-old Raymond (Beamer) Boxby, moves from Virginia Beach to Cow country Ohio where he gets to spend spring break on his crazy cousins dairy farm. Sebastian (Bash) Hinglehobb, the master prankster, takes Beamer on a wild tour of April fools shenanigans. With a little battle between the sexes, Bash and Beamer spread the fun to nearly every adult and kid within biking distance. Meanwhile, a mysterious robber plagues the neighborhood, and Bash decides they need to crack the case.

    More merriment from Burton Cole, as he captures some earthy, preteen humor on a dairy farm. Boys versus girls rivalry spices the plot while the author manages to keep the mystery light enough for the most apprehensive of readers. Along the way youll learn more than you can imagine about cows and milk, while yet again encountering powerful spiritual truths seamlessly woven into the story. Another fun and encouraging read.

    This book by: Burton W. Cole and Illustrated By: Buddy Lewis is the third in the Bash Series. Bash, Beamer and their friends are living the simple life. Bash's farm is full of humor, adventure, pranks, a colorful goat, a cow that makes chocolate milk, and a robber! In the midst of kids being kids, they have serious thought and conversation about what it means to be baptized and the great commission.

    To be completely honest, I just could not get into this book. It was a difficult read for me because of the "redneck" talk between the characters. For example, the first few sentences read as follows:

    "Bash squished a blue Play-Doh snake over the last glitter-ing nail point jutting from the plank seat. "Better safe than screeching' 'bout prickly pants." His nose twitched like a rabbit with the sniffles. "'Sides, only thing better-smellin' than Play-Doh is chocolate."

    While this type of book might be appealing to school age boys, I (a 33 year old woman) could not get past this style of writing. Since the book is geared toward 8-12 year olds, I asked my 8 year old daughter to read it to see if she would like it. She did not get past the first couple of pages before telling me that she did not want to read anymore. I asked her why and she said it was not interesting to her.

    Without having read the previous two books, I do not know how this book compares to them. This is a wholesome book and age appropriate for the target audience. The cover is colorful and exciting. The illustrations are cute!

    In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission I am required to disclose that B&H Kids provided this book for free in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Spending time on the farm is what most kids would dream would be a time of untold imagination and unlimited fun. Where the sky is the limit and staying outside lasts well past the time the sun goes down. When Raymond William Boxby, known fondly as Beamer arrives to hang out with his third cousin, twice removed, but not far enough in Beamer's mind, Sebastian "Bash" Hinglehob. Their adventures are only beginning when reports of a robber being spotted in town, leaves Bash wanting to capture him and Beamer, trying to stay as far away as possible.

    Things begin as most would expect adventurous boys would, building boats large enough for them to fit in to gain access to catching frogs in the small creek on the edge of the farm, to helping set the stage for the largest April Fool's Day joke even on Bash's father. It will be the day that the dairy cows will give chocolate milk for the first time, and as every kid knows there is no better milk to drink than chocolate milk. Beamer isn't sure how Bash is going to pull this off, and he knows based on all his other pranks they have been attempting to pull off, they are likely going to be reaping the consequences of those actions for a long, long time.

    In the book, BASH and the Chocolate Milk Cows by Burton W. Cole, young readers will gain an true appreciation to what life was like before technology kept kids from being outside and letting their imaginations run wild. What Bash and Beamer do along with all the other kids from surrounding farms, is redefine what fun really is. From blasting off in a pretend chicken coop to galaxies far, far away, to smashing eggs on the dairy cows noses as they attempt to win the battle of the Moovarians versus the Cluckorians. Even the names the boys give to the frogs that they raise from tadpoles are completely hilarious and remind us all once more of the precious days of childhood.

    I received BASH and the Chocolate Milk Cows by Burton W. Cole compliments of B and H Publishing Group and Shelton Interactive for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. I love the amazing illustrations that accompany the opening of each chapter. Just when you think the boys will finally stay out of trouble, they hatch another creative plot. It truly takes me back to my childhood days of catching frogs and trying to keep them at home, not a successful venture by the way, when they escape, and the unlimited ideas that come when two boys put their heads and imaginations together to fill their days when chores are done. The chocolate milk prank had to be my favorite one they manage to pull off but how they did it, will remain a secret until readers find out for themselves. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and reminds me a lot of the Beverly Cleary series of books I read growing up.
