5 Stars

I can’t hardly believe after all the books I’ve read in my life that this book actually had me so hooked I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. All I could think about was that I must buy a copy of this book for each of my grandchildren that I know would enjoy it, and I plan to do that at each of their birthdays.

This proves to me that it doesn’t matter what age group a book is I am totally in love with detective type books with a lot of mystery. I loved the flow of this story and I grew up reading The Nancy Drew mysteries and this brought back many memories of enjoying those while my brother read The Hardy Boys and I can’t wait to share this with friends that have younger children as well.

Awesome and absolutely look forward to more from Sam and Rex 🙂

Terror in Boring Town (A Sam and Rex Adventure Book 1) by Hoot N is a great children’s book. It is an adventure mystery story that was written with children from the ages of 9 to 12 in mind. The story is about two young boys Sam and Rex who are on summer vacation and one who looks for everything as an adventure of some sort the other not so much but when they see a strange truck in town, the boys decide to get to the bottom of what is going on. The story is fun and original and the characters were well written and relatable.
Surely to be a hit.

I am NOT the intended demographic for this story HOWEVER; I very much enjoyed it and actually identified with a few of the “older folks”. Mr. Patel, for example, because he’s always sneaking the kids candy when Mrs. Patel isn’t looking. That’s the kind of Aunt I am – so I get it.

This is a delightful story that I would absolutely give to my nieces and nephews to read. I have a few that don’t like to read and I think this one might change their mind. It’s a delightful adventure of 2 young boys and the things they experience one summer in a town called Boring, MD. Trust me; it’s NOT a boring story.

HOOT N HOLLER is a new to me author (or team of authors) and enjoyed the way they told a tale. I’m not sure who had what voice, but it was seamless in the telling. The story is well plotted and a great read.

I look forward to reading more adventures written by this (these) delightful author(s).

Terror in Boring Town is a fantastic children’s chapter book, aimed at children 9 -12 years old. It is a mystery/adventure, with humour, danger, a little drama, and is lots of fun.
We meet Sam Snead and Rex Coak, who have just begun their summer vacation. Sam is dreading the long summer break, because there isn’t ever anything to do in their Boring home town. Nothing interesting every happened. Rex on the other hand, is the more upbeat and optimistic of the two. He sees adventure in the simplest of things- a boy with a vivid imagination and a curious nature, he loved making up stories which usually involved seeing spies and/or criminals on the run where ever he went.
When they see a strange truck parked at the post office one day, Rex is convinced something sinister is afoot- but Sam thinks Rex is just being Rex. But, soon, he is convinced as well, and the boys try to warn the adults. But with a reputation for wild stories, the adults are sceptical- and so the boys set out on their own ‘investigation’ to get to the bottom of it all. Is there really something sinister going on, or is this just another case of an overactive imagination? What do they uncover? This story is well worth the read to find out.
I read this story with my nephews aged 8 and 11. They loved the fact that it was an adventure with some mystery to it. The boys rarely stay still for anything, but when we were reading the book they were following along attentively, there was no fidgeting or restlessness at all- they were completely captivated, and I could tell that they were enjoying the book (just as much as I was). We read it a few chapters at a time and got through it easily over the weekend. The boys and I were sad when it finished because we didn’t want the experience to end- but we were happy at the way the author wrapped up the story. They can’t wait to read the next book, together.
The story that the author has produced is quite original. It is really written, with age appropriate language, humour, and drama. There’s funny banter, quips, and antics- and enough drama and suspense to keep you turning the pages to find out what happens. It definitely kept the boys guessing, too. We also thought it would make a great (family) movie. The characters were all wonderfully crafted- they were realistic and believable. We loved the names given to the characters, it gave an added element of interest and humour. For example, Daisy Whoopsy, Les Gross, and Postmaster Boring.
I highly recommend this for any adventure/mystery loving middle-school age child- or child at heart 😊…. You won’t be disappointed!
The next book is called “The Christmas Bandit” (Book #2)- coming soon.

Thank you, Hoot N. Holler!

The story Terror in Boring Town (A Sam and Rex Adventure Book 1) by Hoot N. Holler is a book that has mystery, friendship, and adventure. It tells the story of Sam and Rex. They are twelve-year-old friends who live in a boring town. They are on summer vacation when they become suspicious of two mysterious strangers who have appeared in town.

Will Sam and Rex be able to stop them? Will lives be put at risk to expose the criminals? Read this book to find out. I believe this story to be one that kids will find joy in reading. Younger readers will find the characters of Sam and Rex to be relatable and their adventure exciting. The mystery and adventure will keep their interest. Sam and Rex’s characters are well-developed. Rex has a large imagination and Sam is his best friend that is always there with him. There are other additional characters that you read about and have a part to play in the book. I found the story entertaining and enjoyed reading it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A children’s chapter book that I enjoyed from cover to cover. It is about two boys who live in a boring town until a couple of strangers arrive in town. What will happen when Sam and Rex go on a mission to prove that these strangers are criminals? These two boys are creative when trying to get their proof and even life threatening. This is a great story and I would not hesitate to give it to our children. Twists and turns brought down to a child’s level. I highly recommend this book for children
