Overview

The Girls Take Over by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

The race is on! The Hatford boys and the Malloy girls are ready to outdo one another again. Eddie is the first girl to ever try out for the school baseball team. Now she and Jake are competing for the same position, while Caroline and Wally compete for class spelling bee champ. Wally is itching to win, but Caroline the show-off plans to be number one.

As if that wasn’t enough, the kids decide to race bottles down the rising Buckman River to see whose will go the farthest by the end of the month. The winner will be queen or king for the day while the other kids act as servants. But neither team trusts the other. When the girls go down to the river to try and capture the boys’ bottles, Caroline falls into the rising water. It looks like those Malloy girls may be in over their heads this time!

The book ' The Girls Take Over' is a great book for adventrous readers. The main idea is that the Mallory girls are always competing with the Hartford boys. A lot of events happen in this story. Two reasons why I liked the book are the bottle race and because it was about girls and boys competing. Some highlights of the book are the bottle race and the spelling contest. Read the rest of my review to find out other details on ' The Girls Take Over.' I chose this book to read because in my school the girls are always competing with the boys. I thought the book would be about baseball because on the front cover of the book a girl is holding a bat and the boy is sitting next to a baseball glove and holding a bat as well. You can read this great story and see if it is or is not about baseball. Like I said there, are many surprises in the book. Its a page turning adventure. The main characters are the Mallory girls (Beth, Eddie and Caroline) and the Hartford boys (Peter, Wally, Josh and Jake.) The author of this book is Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. She also had written ' The Boys Start The War', The Girls Get Even', ' Boys Against Girls', ' The Girls Revenge', ' A Traitor Among The Boys', ' A Spy Among The Girls', ' The Boys Return', and ' The Girls Take Over'. As you read from my review you can tell that I loved this book. I think this book is appropriate for ages 7-11 years old. Like I said, go and read ' The Girls Take Over'. I would rate this book from one to five, five being the best I would give it a four. Hold on for this suspenseful story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is one of the many books in the Hatfordvs.Malloy series by Phylis Reynold Taylor. This book is probably my favorite of all the series because it is filled with real life competitions that show the rivarly between boys and girls. Anyway in this book, Jake and Eddie compete to be the star pitcher on the Buckmann Badgers baseball team. This leaves the Hatford brothers (Josh, Wally and Peter) and the Malloy sisters (Beth and Caroline) in an awkward position as they are forced to choose sides, not wanting to tell one of the pitchers the truth. Also Caroline and Wally compete to be the best speller in the fourth grade. And at the sametime Beth and Josh start to grow closer. This book is full of competition and id rate it five out offive

This book is about a group of brothers and a group of sisters. One of the boys and one of the girls like to play baseball and another boy and girl like spelling so they compete to be the best. One day they decided to do a bottle race and they put a note in the bottle that has their phone number so whoesevers bottle goes the farthest will be king or queen for the day.But obstacles happen along the way. What will happen to the boys when the girls....... I really enjoyed this book because the boys would compete with the girls. I liked all the different language the author used. The word choice made it more interesting. If you have not read it you SHOULD!!
