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.
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.
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.
