  • Spirituality - High
  • Romance - None
  • Violence - Some

A blizzard dumps several feet of snow, stranding Raymond Boxby, a.k.a. Beamer, on his cousin, Sebastian Hinglehobb’s northeastern Ohio farm. But Bash with his wild imagination, and penchant for crazy, leads Beamer on a quest to capture all of the fruit of the Spirit. Enter the winter fun, tobogganing supersleds off rooftops, a rescue mission with a pig drawn sleigh, and launching giant snow bombs with a catapult, among other adventures, are interrupted by something weird happening in the chicken coop—and Ray suspects one of the neighbor kids is punking Bash.


More zany fun from Burton Cole, this time with some boys versus girls fun in a contest of wit and will. With an interesting glimpse of farm life in the winter, snow caves, snow sculpture, hay forts, and snowball fights (among many other crazy kid capers) keeps the action moving. Bash and Beamer learn some cool stuff and are amazed at how God uses their determined kindness to eventually change the lives of their new neighbors. Another fun read.
