Burton W. Cole: Author and humorist Burton W. Cole is a Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist with 30 years of experience and more than 50 humor writing awards to his credit. Cole grew up on a small farm south of Conneaut, in northeast Ohio. From attending Sunday school with family and friends to finding entertainment outside on the farm, adventures could break out on even the dullest days when Cole, his siblings and cousins got together to romp through each other's family's fields, farms and barns. Those boyhood experiences inspire his colorful and zany stories today. Written for middle-grades children, Cole's first two novels, "Bash and the Pirate Pig" (B&H Kids, September 2013) and "Bash and the Chicken Coop Caper" (B&H KIds, May 2014), are illustrated by former Disney and VeggieTales illustrator, Tom Bancroft. For his third book in the series, "Bash and the Chocolate Milk Cows" (B&H Kids, May 2015), also a former Disney and Veggie Tales artist, takes over the illustration duties.
