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.

From Booklist

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. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Hatford boys said they would treat them like sisters, but who said you have to be nice to sisters? The Hatford boys play many tricks on the Malloy girls, but they do not work why? The girls no what is coming. How do they no cookies and brownies do the trick. Caroline the actress of the Malloy family gets to be in a play. But so thing happens. A blizzard comes and the boys and girls are alon together worring about there parents. In this book you will not no what is coming next. That is why I call it the best book of the Millenium.

What a GREAT book! I can't wait for number 6! I have read all 5 in the series to my third graders this year. They absolutely love the antics of Caroline and Wally. Teacher read aloud is their favorite time of the day. It's a great way for me to teach predicting outcomes as the children love to guess what will happen next. I have passed this series to several other third grade teachers and they tell me their kids love the books. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series to anyone who enjoys reading.

I love this series like crazy! I live here in Asia, so it's kind of difficult for me to get a hold of American books, but like the saying "love conquers all" I will buy and read these books even if I have to swim back to America! Phyllis Naylor is one of my favorite author and one of my idols. I would also like to remark about the entry above mine, I thank the person for being considerate enough not to give away the ending and not 'spoiling it'. I hope these books go on for a LONG time!

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...
