Ivy and Bean, Volume 1

Front Cover

8 Reviews
The moment they saw each other, Bean and Ivy knew they wouldn't be friends. But when Bean plays a joke on her sister, Nancy, and has to hide, quick! Ivy comes to the rescue, proving that sometimes the best of friends are people never meant to like each other. Vibrant characters and lots of humor make this a charming - and addictive - introduction to a new series.

Includes bonus material!
- Sneak peek chapter from the next book in the Ivy + Bean series Ivy and Bean and the Ghost That Had to Go by Annie Barrows, illustrated by Sophie Blackall
