Hashbrown Winters and the Phantom of Pordunce by Frank L. Cole
Author: Frank L. Cole
Paperback: 88 pages
FTC FYI: Received a PDF review copy.
Life at Pordunce is back to normal - well, as normal as ever in the three-ring circus that passes for Hashbrown's elementary school. But everything changes when a ghostly presence starts roaming the halls. And even worse, Hashbrown's club may be about to lose one of its founding members. Can Hashbrown save the day? This snort-worthy, fun-filled roller-coaster ride of a book is guaranteed to get you giggling - assuming you can pry it away from your kids long enough to read it yourself.
"A ghost in Pordunce!" Butter Bibowksi said in disbelief. "How's this even possible?"
"It's not that hard to believe." Snow Cone tucked the transmitter in his back pocket. "We've all heard the rumors about the ancient burial grounds beneath the septic tank."
"But those are just rumors," Whiz said.
"There are never just rumors at Pordunce," I reminded him.
Hashbrown Winters is finally settling into the good life. But when a mysterious phantom begins haunting the school and Hashbrown's treehouse is hijacked, he knows he's up to his armpits in trouble. And if that weren't enough, there's a new girl in school who might just be his match--in marbles, that is. Not to mention the fact that Bubblegum Bulkins, an original member of the treehouse club, is moving in just two weeks. Now Hashbrown will have to rely on a few unexpected allies to save his friends, his treehouse, and his entire school.
The third installment in the best-selling Hashbrown Winters series takes the adventure to a whole new level. Stuffed fill of pitch-perfect humor the whole family will love, this book all your old favorite characters along with some awesome additions. A guaranteed page-turner and laugh-out loud winner, this is one story you just can't miss.
4 out of 5 stars. Another hit for Hashbrown and the gang. I loved the fun twist of Hashbrown having a rival marble champion. Melanie is a great character and her brother Nugget is a hoot. Just don't get him mad... Look out if you do. Hashbrown and his gang's antics are enjoyable for kids and adults. You will enjoy helping them figure out who the phantom is, and why he or she is out to get everyone. Including innocent hamsters. I can't wait to see what is in store for them in Book 4. Hashbrown Winters and the Whiz-tastrophe comes out next month.
