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, 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 Ivy and Bean. Illustrations.

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - Stahl-Ricco - LibraryThing

My first chapter book that I've read with my almost five year old girl! She loves it! I'm not particularly thrilled with Bean's behavior, and some of the things she says, but I do love the reactions in my daughter! Her eyes light up and she smiles from ear to ear! I guess we'll read book #2! Read full review

My Little Bookworm - The End

User Review  - GrannyPatt - Target

This will be the fourth book in the Ivy Bean series that I have purchased for my great granddaughter. The first was a birthday present and the last three are for Christmas. She enjoys reading so she will receive something she can learn from and treasure at the same time. Read full review
