I like how the author made her character Ivy very smart. Ivy gets all the ideas for trying to get out of ballet class. Bean is silly. Once when Ivy thought they should break their arms, Bean thought when you break your arm you actually snap your arm off. I like the books in this series because Ivy and Bean have been friends forever. I relate to this book because I take ballet class, but I don’t hate it like they do. I love to take ballet class. I also like how the author uses a lot of details. For example, once they found their class at the aquarium they told everyone every single little detail about what they saw.
I recommend this book to 2nd – 4th graders. Also, people who like books about best friends will like this book. If you have a best friend, maybe you would like to read it with your best friend.
