    One thought on “The Swamp Robber

      This review is based soley on this edition, not the original work. And this review is not based on the current story, etc.This review only concerns addressing the insane and repugnant idea that the Sugar Creek Gang series needed 'updating for today's readers'. Words can hardly describe such a horrible idea.Where do we get this idea that 'today's readers' are such primitive creatures as to need 'updating'? If it were just a matter of spelling, but everyone knows spelling hasn't change dramaticall [...]

      I've read like five books in this series. There's nothing reallywrongwith them. I just found them really boring. You'd think I could read a tiny book such as this. It took me two tries to get through it, I believe.

    3. Rebekah Rodda on said:

      What an excellent boys book - full of action and all the things boys love - guns, spiders, swimming, climbing and robbers. Even better it talks about Jesus in an engaging and frank way. So glad to have this to read to my boys. Looking forward to getting them the next one.

    4. Joshua Jacobson on said:

      I really wanted this to be a fun book/series that I could read to my youngest son. Unfortunately, I didn't find it that well written. And all of the Christainese stuff thrown in felt forced, unnatural, and irrelevant to the story. I wanted a quality story for boys that had a strong Christian message. This book attempted to be that, but fell well short of the goal. I was bummed.

    5. Audrey on said:

      A member of our church gave us a big set of Sugar Creek Gang books, for our boys to read. I had never heard of them before so I picked up the first one to see what it was all about. It's a short book, only 97 pages, but it was such a sweet story! He actually starts to develop the characters fairly well, but what I love is that it talks about Jesus and the main character, Bill, is learning how to pray and how to 'be a real Christian' like his friend little Jim. Some of the lines are just so pure [...]

    6. Linda Mae Churchill on said:

      This was a wonderful story about boys being boys. Mystery, fun and the transforming power of Jesus.

    7. Nicola Mansfield on said:

      This is a Christian fiction adventure series aimed at boys, which has never been out of print since its first publication in the 1940s. The edition I read is the 1997 "revised edition", the one still in print today, which has made the text more relatable to contemporary readers. I don't have both editions side by side to compare but this 90's edition has no references to outdated technology or speech. It still evokes an aura of taking place in the past, during a time when boys were given knives [...]

      Sugar Creek Gang: The Swamp Robber by Paul HutchensWilliam Jasper “Bill” Collins and his five friends are growing up in a small rural town. Bill and his friend Roy “Dragonfly” Gilbert discover a hidden disguise while out fishing one summer afternoon. The next day, police report a bank robber on the loose and possibly in the area. Bill and Dragonfly get together with their Sugar Creek Gang—Little Jimmy Foote, Big Jim, Leslie “Poetry” Thompson, and Daniel “Circus” Browne—to dis [...]

      These were the first books I ever read by myself (not required by school, or my mom, etc.). I loved them. I would devour 2 or 3 in one day. They were a lot of fun, and I will retain fond memories of them for the rest of my life. That said, I know if I read them today, they would get 1 star, maybe 2. When I was younger I would have given them 5 stars, so I split the difference and chose 3 stars.

    10. Lisa Bittle on said:

      Watched the movies years ago, which I didn't think were all that great. But hoped the books would be better. I was disappointed to find the book was just like the movie. The author has a really wrong idea of what the GOspel message is, and how one comes to faith in Christ. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

    11. Caleb on said:

      I liked it. There's this one guy who is trying to rob this money from someone who disappeared. No one knows where he is. Everyone thinks he died, but he's just traveling around the world. The guy is dressed up like him and so when he comes into his old house where the guy is living he almost kills the guy. Except for the guy tells him where his treasure is because he's rich.

    12. Rachel on said:

      My father read these books to my brothers when I was a child, so there's a strong sense of nostalgia as I read them to my children now. I love the way Hutchens understands the rough and tumble world of boys, but also their growing spirituality. He makes Christianity everyday and understandable to children.

    13. Aravis on said:

      It was very exciting and adventurous.In the beginning, Circus, Big Jim, Little Jim, Poetry, and Dragonfly went to the river to swim. In the middle, they looked in this tree and found two white things and something black. In the end, they found the swamp robber and the swamp robber got thrown in jail. But, then he got released.

    14. Elaine on said:

      This is a nice series for boys. I'm not going to review them all. I've read a few of them. In general, I like them-they've got a mystery to solve, there's some conflict to resolve, and lessons to be learned. I think after reading too many of them though, it gets a little old.

    15. Ashley on said:

      I read this series of books when I was 8/9, and I still enjoy them.

    16. Johannes Kristian on said:

      I liked itof course I can't help liking mystery booksat's like me.

    17. Ronia Larson on said:

      This series is so amazing! Everyone should read this! Such a page turner!

    18. Ruth on said:

      I read the first one to the Podlings to get them started on the series, should they be interested in continuing. The flow of the narrative didn't work for me, but the kids gobbled it up.

    19. Pru Ramos on said:

      The kids really love these books. They talk about Christ and being a Christian a lot and it kept the children's attention. They want the whole series.

    20. Reepacheep on said:

      I remember reading this as a boy, and enjoyed reading it to my two boys.

    21. Ratforce on said:

      This first story in the series from The Sugar Creek Gang teaches a lesson about reaping and sowing as the gang catches a robber.

    22. Emily on said:

      I enjoyed the first half of the book but was very disappointed by the rampant armenianism in the latter half. Ruined the book for me.

    23. Anna Gibson on said:

      Really good but a better read for a little boy. I wanted to see what happened in the series so I read it.

    24. Olivia on said:

      I really enjoyed this book! I loved the style it was written in and the characters. Definitely keeping this for by someday kids!
