The Hatford boys and the Malloy girls are at it again. The first girl ever to try out for the school baseball team, Eddie is competing with Jake for the same position, while Caroline and Wally vie for the title of class spelling champ. As if that's not enough, the kids decide to race bottles down the rising river to see whose will travel farthest. The winner will be queen or king for a day, with the other kids acting as servants. But neither team trusts the other.
