When city-dwelling Raymond "Beamer" Boxby is sent to his cousin's farm for the summer, he isn't sure how it'll be fun with no air conditioning or video games. He can't see what good can come from the country adventures his cousin Bash has, like riding cows, or playing with skunks. But the real discovery is with Bash's "Fishin' and Farmin' book", which Beamer recognizes---the Bible. From here, Beamer is about to find a truly great adventure through salvation.
Written for boys 8 to 14, Bash and the Pirate Pig is the story of a cranky city kid named Raymond "Beamer" Boxby who must spend summer vacation at his younger cousin Bash Hinglehobbs farm.
Beamer prefers air conditioning and video games. He cant 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 Bashs zany adventures with his "Fishin' and Farmin' book" (The Bible) just might lead to the coolest Discovery of all.
