Ivy and Bean is a book full of adventure with twists and turns. Ivy’s personality is very interesting and she loves witches. Bean’s personality is very funny and strong. Some of the other characters in the book are Bean’s older sister, Nancy, Bean’s mom, and Ivy’s mom. At first, Ivy and Bean ignore each other. Then Bean hatches a plan and needs Ivy’s help. It all begins when Bean plays a trick on her sister and needs a place to hide. You will have to find out the rest by reading Ivy and Bean.
I like Ivy and Bean because it is fun and exciting. When you start to read, you will not stop. I like the author Annie Barrows because she writes it in a way that kids can understand. For example, I had a connection because sometimes I get into trouble on my play dates like Ivy and Bean and I love Ivy and Bean.
