Book Description

Jan. 9 2001 Boy/Girl Battle
The Hatford boys' New Year's resolution is "the girls can stay . . . but only if they play by our rules." Their mother insists that they "treat those girls as though they were your sisters." Okay, but somehow the boys' interpretation owes more to sibling rivalry than to brotherly love. The one weak link is young Peter, who doesn't understand the rivalry, openly likes the girls, and sees nothing wrong with sitting in their kitchen eating homemade cookies and answering questions about his brothers' plans. Readers will find themselves laughing out loud at the pranks, the conversations, and one unforgettably embarrassing moment. The high-flying humor is juxtaposed with the budding affection between Josh and Beth and the way all the children pull together during a blizzard. The fifth entry in Naylor's refreshing series chronicling the feud between the Hatfords and the Malloys.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-The fifth installment in Naylor's series about two feuding families in small-town West Virginia. Strongly encouraged by their mother, the Hatford boys make a New Year's resolution to treat the Malloy girls like sisters. But the boys reason that brothers and sisters sometimes fight, don't they? Thus, the war resumes. However, this time it is complicated by the youngest Hatford brother, Peter, who is easily persuaded by homemade cookies and other sweets to reveal his brothers' plans. Snowball fights, lima-bean brownies, a community play featuring two members of each family, and a climactic blizzard that brings all seven children together follow in the next few weeks. Fans of the series and newcomers alike will enjoy this entertaining read and the mischievous pranks the two groups play on one another. The children are likable, full of energy, and evenly matched so that each side has its wins and losses. Those who enjoyed the girl/boy feuds in Gregory Maguire's Seven Spiders Spinning (Clarion, 1994), and Gary Greer's This Island Isn't Big Enough for the Four of Us (HarperCollins, 1989) will relish this series.

3.0 out of 5 stars G-D made guys so girls can flirt! March 11 2003
By Rachel
Format:Paperback
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor is one of my favorite Authors, I adore the Alice series and I enjoy this series as well. But I think that there should be more girl guy relationships going on here if you know what I mean...Anyways I recommend this series and any other Phyllis Reynolds Naylor book because she truely is one of the only amazing authors who writes stories that teens and children can relate to. If you haven't read any of her works of genius than I suggest you start with this series...

5.0 out of 5 stars Here we go again... May 2 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I happened upon Ms. Naylor's books through a book club and the titles sounded interesting. After reading the first 4 books aloud to my fourth grade students, I just had to buy this 5th book online! The pranks that the kids do to each other in this book continue to be filled with imagination. Thankfully, no one gets hurt because no serious harm is ever committed. If you want to understand pre-teens, this series is one to purchase!
