A Yearling Book - RL 4.8

Two books in one!
1st: The Boys Start The War.
2nd: The Girls Get Even.

"The Boys Start The War"
The Hatford brothers were expecting three boys to move into the house across the river, where their best friends used to live, the Malloy girls arrive instead. Wally and his brothers decide to make Caroline and her sisters so miserable that they'll want to go back to Ohio, but they haven't counted on the ingenuity of the girls.

From dead fish to dead bodies, floating cakes to floating heads, the pranks and tricks continue - first by the boys, then the girls - until someone is taken prisoner!.

Then....

"The Girls Get Even"
Still smarting over the boys latest trick on them, the girls are determined to get even.

Caroline's thrilled to play the part of Goblin Queen in the school play, especially since Waly Hatford has to be her footman.
The boy's however have a creepy plan for Halloween night. They are certain the girls will walk right into it. Little do the boys know what the Malloy sisters have in store.

Good reading fun.

This book was okay, it wasn't exactly my style though. But it is a good book for Junior high kids, or for someone who likes a fun easy read. The girls against the boys is a funny book, and for those with children who are obsessed about things like that, this is a good read aloud family book.

Double the fun two booksin one!
The boys start the war- The Hatford brothers were expecting three boys to move into the house across the river, where their best friends used to live, the Mallory girls arrive instead. So the boys decide to make the girls so miserable that they will move back to Ohio.
The girls get even- Still smarting over the boys' latest trick the girls are determined to get even. Caroline gets the part in the school play as the Goblin Queen only because Wally has to be the footman. The boys however have a plan for Halloween. They are certain the girls will walk into. Little do they know what the Mallory girls have in store.
