Author Info
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's first work was published in a church magazine when she was 16 years old. She paid her way through college, where she majored in clinical psychology, by writing and selling stories. Naylor found that she enjoyed writing so much that she abandoned her plans to attend graduate school. WHAT THE GULLS WERE SINGING, her first published work for children, appeared in 1967. Her 1991 work, SHILOH, was awarded the Newbery Medal.
"Readers will find no shortage of laughs in this light page-turner."
"...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."
From the Publisher
Annotation The Hatford brothers start a campaign to force their new neighbors, the Malloys, out of town when they learn that the family has all girls--no boys. What the Hatfords don't realize is that the Malloys are as good as causing trouble as they are. Will the boy's pranks start an all-out war? The story continues in the sequel THE GIRLS GET EVEN.
