Join Emma Perez and Sylvie Scruggs in new school adventures full of girl power!

Cherry Hill Elementary has always had two baseball fields, one for Sylvie Scruggs's fourth-grade-and-under friends, and one for Jamie Redmond's fifth-grade crew. When Jamie's field is demolished for a kindergarten playground, the fifth graders want to take over the fourth-grade space. Finally, Sylvie and Jamie make a bet: Whoever wins the school spelling bee wins the baseball diamond too. Sylvie knows her friend Miranda will be the champion, no question, and the field will be safe for her team.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Sylvie Scruggs series: "Two words: Sylvie Scruggs. Two more words: LOVE HER! Eyre nails it with this new kid on the block. (And here's a challenge: I dare you not to laugh out loud)." -- Barbara O'Connor, author of How to Steal a Dog and The Fantastic Secret of Owen Jester "Pair this with Barbara Park's Junie B. Jones series or Sara Pennypacker's Clementine series." -- Booklist "Eyre's laugh-out-loud debut novel captures the discovery of the opposite sex in a fun and realistic way, while Santoso's black-and-white artwork brings the personalities of the characters to life. Fans of Junie B. Jones will love the adventures of this heroine as they become engaged in this early chapter book." -- School Library Journal "Eyre's entertaining debut will have readers looking forward to Sylvie's next adventure." -- Publishers Weekly "Boisterous, confident... Readers will appreciate watching Sylvie determinedly working toward her goals." -- Kirkus Reviews
