Synopsis: Are you a Troop Committee Member looking for a thank-you gift for the Scoutmaster? Are you a Scout Leader looking for a book that's a tribute to the funny side of Scouting? Maybe you're a Scout that's a candidate for the coveted "Burnt Wiener Cooking Award". Have you ever been, known, or seen a Boy Scout? If you answered "Yes", saluted, or weren't listening because you're in the middle of fixing a cobbler, you've just gotta have "A Boy Scout's Handbook of Madcap Tales, Volume 1".
Follow a lost Scout searching for his troop and a bowl of cobbler through 11 madcap tales, crazy full-color illustrations, exclusive tips from Sir Nuttbucket (bet you've never heard of the Hienrick Maneuver!), and fake "Boys' Life" classified ads.
Tale titles are: The Scout Who Bought a Snipe; I Pledge Allegiance to Everything I've Ever Heard; Road Kill, Hold the Cheese; My Brother Burrnie; The Pampered Scout; The Troop Bus That Couldn't and Didn't Want To; The Granny Knot; A Scout is Also Resourceful; The Tenderfoot Who Hiked Up a Hill and Slid Down a Bad Cobbler; The Scout Who Always Got Car Sick; and Highway Adventure.
Plus there's: The Handbook Part, Extra Bonus Filler, Madcap Scouts' Classified Ads, and a Trading Post order form featuring collectable patches and postcards that go along with the book. "Burnt Wiener Cooking Award" candidates--are you paying attention!?
The author, Sir Nuttbucket (who bears a great deal of resemblance to the illustrator), has vast Scouting experience including: Webelos, Pinewood Derby winner, Senior Patrol Leader, youth escort to Green Bar Bill, yellow snow maker, Council SPL for Peterloon (a big deal in Dan Beard Council), 3 years Summer Camp staff, 2 National Jamborees, 2 Philmont Treks, Seven 50-Milers (backpacking), Eagle Scout, Vigil Honor, Scout Master, OA ceremony team, Vigil Chief, and being rescued by helicopter in the wilderness of Wyoming---oops. He understands that in the process of guiding boys to become responsible young men, madcap stuff just happens---and it's best to have a sense of humor about it.
This zany book is a tribute to the funny side of Scouting and a perfect gift for Scouts and Scouters alike.
From the Author: Dear Scout:
I feel obligated to inform you that this is a most ridiculous book. It's full of madcap humor involving vomit, a falling burro, and getting the runs...well actually the "slides." But at least it’s small and easy to hide. Well anyway, I hope you enjoy it...
