"Nate Rocks the Boat" by Karen Pokras Toz {Review & Giveaway - Ends 2/22}

Welcome to My Cozie Corner's stop on the 
"Nate Rocks the Boat" book tour. 
This tour is brought to you by Innovative Book Tours.


With fourth grade finally winding down, 10-year-old Nathan Rockledge is looking forward to a fun and relaxing summer at home with his friends. That is, until his mom decides he has to go to overnight camp with his annoying older sister.  When his best friend Tommy decides to tag along, Nathan thinks maybe his summer won’t actually be so bad. After all, he does get to be away from his mom's awful cooking for an entire six weeks.

Amongst Color War competitions, a flaky counselor, and a bully named "No-Neck,” Nathan turns to his trusty sketchpad, transforming himself into Nate Rocks: 10-year-old extraordinaire. His speedboat ready for action, Nate saves the day time and again from the perils of floods, snakes, ghosts, and even the most wanted criminals.

Join Nathan, Tommy, Abby, and a whole new cast of characters as Nate Rocks once again proves nothing can hold him back in this second book of the Nate Rocks series.

Once again Nate rocks in "Nate Rocks the Boat", the second book in the 'Nate Rocks' series. A truly fun and entertaining read for middle grade readers. As an adult I totally enjoyed this book and don't worry if you didn't read the first book "Nate Rocks the World"... the book can be read as a stand alone. A total must read, especially for boys around 8-10 years of age!

I give "Nate Rocks the Boat" a 5 star rating.
