Gr 3-6-In this 10th book about the Hatford boys and the Malloy girls, the children are looking forward to the annual Strawberry Festival in June. Fourth-grader Caroline decides to be nice instead of selfish so that she can be the Strawberry Queen or a helper on the float. At school the kids are told that those who can earn or collect $20 or more for the new children's wing of the community hospital will have their choice of all the strawberry treats they can eat or be in the parade. The kids begin projects on their own but learn that they can earn more money working together in a car-wash business. Bullies down the street are upset by the competition, but the dispute is resolved by a water-balloon fight and more business. Meanwhile, the girls don't know if the family will move back to Ohio or if their father will take a coaching job in Buckman. With its likable characters and descriptions of school and family life, the novel will satisfy series fans, and new readers will be able to join in on the fun.-Debbie Stewart Hoskins, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
