Book Description:
All Hashbrown Winters ever wanted was a simple life: a treehouse full of buddies, enough marbles to keep him occupied at recess, and a Brody the Ape-Slayer action figure with authentic ninja throwing stars. But everything changes when Hi Mashimoto starts a rival club and threatens to take Hashbrown’s place as the kid with the coolest treehouse at Pordunce Elementary.

My Review:

 If you have ever read The Adventures of Hashbrown Winters, you know that you are in for a good laugh when you read this second book in the series. Hashbrown always seems to have trouble follow him around. Some of the situations he finds himself in crack you up. Frank Cole knows how to write hilarious characters. The dialogue in these books is great. Here for example...

"Have you ever had one of those moments in your life when you step out of your body and watch yourself about to say something pretty dumb? For a second you realize that if you go through with saying it, you’ll end up causing soooo much trouble. But it doesn’t matter—you can’t stop yourself. I had one of those moments standing in front of Hi Mashimoto while Snow Cone caught brain freeze after eating a gallon of shaved ice."

Here is another one that made me LOL!
I should’ve known better. Whenever Snow Cone starts eating shaved ice, he tunes out the rest of the world and goes into a trance. He once followed a shaved ice vendor onto a bus and was picked up three days later by the local authorities in downtown Manhattan. He had no idea how he got there or why he was carrying a paper sack filled with dung beetles. 

Hashbrown and his friends will be enjoyed by grade school kids and teens.As an adult, I would read this book again any day. I read the first Hashbrown Winters book to my 2nd grade class.They loved it! I can't wait to read this second book to them.The fourth book in the series comes out in April. I already own the first three, and I will be standing in line to buy the fourth!

Meet the Author:
Frank L. Cole was born into a family of Southern storytellers and wrote his first book as age eight. Sadly he misplaced the manuscript and has since forgotten what he wrote. Highly superstitious and gullible to a fault, Frank will believe any creepy story you tell him, especially ones involving ghosts and Bigfoot. Currently along with his wife and three children, he resides in the shadow of a majestic western mountain range, which is most likely haunted.

You can learn more about Frank’s writing at Frank’s next book in the Hasbrown Winters series, Hashbrown Winters and the Whiztastrophe, will debut April 9th 2013.  And don’t forget to check out his other books:
