Bash and the Pirate Pig Book Giveaway

I think I might have finally found a book for my son to read. A book he might actually read. Fingers crossed. Does anyone else have a son between the ages of  8-14 that feels like they are losing a never ending battle to get them to READ? This is hard for me. I am a reader.

"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."

The book which releases September 1, 2013 cracks me up. It is so much like how my son sometimes acts when he goes and visits my hometown. He is such a city boy. Cow Tipping? Dairy Drive Thru? Anyone? I will never forget the time my Daddy wanted him to go check the wells (oil) and my son wouldn't go because he thought the wells were killer kinfolk to Free Willy. LOL!

Not only did I get a copy of this book to read, but I also get to give one to my readers. Who wants it? All I want to know is this. The blessed boy who you give or read this book to, is he a City Boy or a Country Boy? Answer in a Disqus comment then go to the Rafflecopter form to input entry. Bonus entries are available.

The boy I would give this to is my grandest son - Rocket! He's just starting to let us know who he is so while he may live in the city, he may be a country boy at heart. We'll have to wait and see. We have a huge collection of pirate books for him that at least one of us reads one of them to him every single day.

I think my son is both but if I had to pick one I would say a country boy :)
