When Andy disobeys his mom and sneaks into the basement of a condemned old house that is to be torn down, he trips and finds a box under an old cabinet. Enter the Crew brothers-Jason, 12 year old bully and 10- year old Danny. When Jason tries to take the box away from Andy, he accidentally ends up as a toad, with a little help from the strange box.

The boys must hike up Devil's Mountain to get turn Jason back to a boy.

The author does a great job making the reader see the boys' trip up the mountain in her/his head. You feel the characters' dread, fear, awe, surprise and the anxiety of a few close calls as the elements attempt to hamper the boys from making it to their destination. Along the way the boys learn to help and trust each other. Happy and surprising ending is very age appropriate. I would recommend this short novella to kids age 10-13.

I received a free copy of this book in return for my review.

HIKE UP DEVIL’S MOUNTAIN (Review)

By Penny Estelle

When you were a child did you ever disobey your parents? If so, what were the results? Did they punish you? Or did something happen because of your disobedience that made you wish you’d listened to you folks? Maybe they were right. Yeah, as we grow older, we discover mothers and fathers are amazingly smart.

Author Penny Estelle’s MG/Tween novel, HIKE UP DEVIL’S MOUNTAIN, is an entertaining adventure about boys, bullies, and surprises, with a touch of fantasy added for good measure. Ten-year-old Andy Thompson explores an abandoned house, where he finds a box with a stick inside it that glows. Being curious, as most kids are, he has to find out more about this amazing stick. Enter the bully, Jason Crew, and his brother, Danny, new kids in school, and there’s never a dull moment. Without giving away the plot, I’ll just mention a talking toad, a witch that lives on Devil’s Mountain, and a blue dragon provide a hefty dose of humor, fear, and discovery for Andy and friends.

Penny Estelle has created characters that have the faults of real children and also their good points. The reader follows along, wondering what will happen next. At least this reader did. The author throws in a surprise or two along the way. Do the boys learn anything from their adventures? Well, pick up a copy of the book and see. HIKE UP DEVIL’S MOUNTAIN would make a great addition to school libraries and classrooms, as well as your own library.

A stick from the abandoned home of a witch puts Andy Thompson in a world of hurt, after he curses town bully, Jason. Jason's younger brother, Danny, and Andy can't turn Jason back into a boy, no matter how many "spells" they think up. The boys then figure out they have to ... gasp! ... Hike up Devil's Mountain!

Rarely have I read such an entertaining tale with such an important message. Penny Estelle's imagination goes full out in this story of a boy forced to undo his own mistake, but only because he was about to have his clock cleaned by the town bully. Estelle devotes a great part of the story to the most important thing to boys - the journey up the mountain, which is fraught with all kinds of dangers they must avoid or escape by using their wits. The revelation at the end caught me somewhat by surprise, but I was beginning to suspect this through some of the things Andy could do. I highly recommend Hike up Devil's Mountain for boys of all ages. It's a reminder of a time before computer games and social media, when kids used their imaginations.

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 9 years, 11 months

SPOILER ALERT:

Ten-year-old Andy Thompson's mother tells him not to go to the house next door because it is old and dangerous, but he sneaks out and goes in the house next door where he finds a red magic stick. Two boys named, Jason and Danny, go to the house as well. While the boys are there, Jason and Andy get into a fight over the magic stick. While they are fighting, Andy told Jason that he was acting like a toad and then Jason turned into a toad!! Danny and Andy try to find a way to turn Jason back into a boy, but nothing works. Danny comes up with an idea to hike up to Devil's Mountain. Andy does not want to do this, but Danny tells him that he has to go. While hiking up Devil's Mountain, strange things start to happen.

My favorite part of this book is when the boys were hiking up Devil's Mountain and they start to get hungry. Danny had gummy bugs and since Jason was a toad, his tongue went flying so he could eat the gummy bugs. This is my favorite part because it was so funny! I think that anyone that likes funny and scary books should read this book. I think that it is best for 3rd-6th graders. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Hike Up Devil's Mountain by Penny Estelle is a fun e-book for elementary school kids. It tells the story of Andy Thompson, a ten-year-old boy who disobeys his mother and explores a termite ridden spooky house. While exploring the home, Andy finds a magical wind and encounters the school bully, Jason Crew.

Jason attempts to steal the wand away from Andy, but for his troubles the bully is turned into a bullfrog. Andy and Danny, Jason's younger brother, rush to Devil Mountain where a witch lives. She is Jason's only hope of being transformed back to his old self.

Penny Estelle keeps the action throttle on full blast as the boys encounter one danger after another in their quest to save Jason's life. Hike Up Devil Mountain is a great inspirational story showing kids integrity and empathy that they could all emulate.

Michael Thal is the author of The Legend of Koolura.
