Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-5. Very much a sequel to The Boys Start the War [F 15 93], this has the same joyful combination of farce, embarrassment, and vulgar insult as the Malloy girls try to outwit the Hartford boys in their small West Virginia town. It's not as funny the second time around; some of the Halloween costume jokes echo those in the first book, and the power game ("Whichever group wins first prize--you or us--will be the masters and the other group will be the slaves") goes on far too long. Still, Naylor captures the way kids play, especially the intensity about enemies, and the plot is full of nice reversal as each group loses, gets even, and loses again. Their parents don't get any of it, and that's also part of the fun. (Reviewed Aug. 1993)0385310293Hazel Rochman"
