Best Friend Battle, The (Sylvie Scruggs, Book 1) Best Friend Battle, The (Sylvie Scruggs, Book 1)

Written by Lindsay Eyre
Illustrated by Charles Santoso

"Funny and human and clever and wise. I really, really like this sparkling, racing, hilarious little gem." -- Hilary McKay, author of Saffy's Angel and Binny in Secret

Sylvie Scruggs doesn't like Georgie Diaz. He always calls her Scruggs. He always beats her in baseball. He didn't invite her to his party. Plus, he's a boy.

Now Georgie is trying to steal Sylvie's best friend, Miranda Tan. He's giving Miranda a super-special birthday present, so Sylvie will too -- only her present will be ten times better. With the help of her twin brothers, a ferret, a castle, and some glitter glue, Sylvie sets out to make Miranda remember who her REAL best friend is, and forget about Georgie forever.

"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



REVIEWS:

"The debut novel deftly presents a multiethnic neighborhood, including some Spanish words from Georgie's abuela. The simple but expressive grayscale illustrations complement the book's humorous tone. A good read-aloud for second grade or an independent read for a third grader." -- Kirkus Reviews

"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

“Chock-full of hilarious antics and funny dialogue. Eyre’s entertaining debut will have readers looking forward to Sylvie’s next adventure.” -- Publishers Weekly
