Tony Taylor and Camping with Scouts, is the second book in the Tony Taylor series by BC Mullins. In this children’s mystery/adventure story, Tony is camping on his grandparents’ farm, with the scouts. The farm is said to be a mystical place, but only a few know the truth. When three of the boys think that it is funny to be horrible and mean to the other scouts, Tony’s grandpa tells the group a story about Pixie’s that are said to live nearby. These pixie’s don’t like nasty people and play tricks on them to teach them a lesson. The three boys laugh at Tony’s Grandpa, yet when they come to stand up all their laces are tied together. When other mysterious occurrences happen, the scout leader demands that the culprit owns up, but everyone is as baffled as the next person about who is playing tricks on the three boys. Are there really pixies living on the land, causing mischief?, or is someone trying to teach them a valuable lesson? I enjoyed the first book in the Tony Taylor series, Tony Taylor and Summer with Grandpa, which I reviewed earlier in the year. So when BC Mullins asked me if I would like to read the second book, I eagerly agreed. Just like in the first book, Tony’s adventure takes place on his grandparents’ farm, where mysterious happenings are said to occur. We also meet up again with Grandpa, Grandma and Skippy the dog too. The book is exciting, and the message about being nice to others comes across good and strong. My only criticism is that I would of loved to have see a few illustrations in the book, given that it’s a children’s story. Just a few, such as one per chapters would of been enough. A short, yet thrilling book, that I’m sure kids will enjoy.
Another great read by B.C.! I am officially hooked, and want to know more about the Taylor's magical farm! I am reminded of the good ole' days at my grandparents house and the many adventures that awaited me there. I love how this book is so captivating and full of detail that brings the content to life. I feel like I am right there with Tony! I highly recommend this book to not just kids, but adults too as it brings back childhood memories and makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. I will be on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book in the series to come out! :)
