Ivy + Bean

Ivy + Bean

Series: Ivy + Bean
by Annie Barrows Illustrated by Sophie Blackall

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 quickly, Ivy comes to the rescue, with her wand, some face paint, and a bucket of worms.

Will they end up in trouble? Maybe. Will they have fun? Of course! 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.
