GlennHaggertyMinneapolis, MN5 Stars Out Of 5Another crazy fun readDecember 19, 2015GlennHaggertyMinneapolis, MNQuality: 0Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Twelve-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.
Alysa SawyerAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5BASH and the Chocolate Milk CowsJuly 23, 2015Alysa SawyerAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3This 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!

Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Life is never boring when you hang out with BASH on the farm!April 24, 2015Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Spending 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.
