"A lively, entertaining read with heart" – Common Sense Media

"Only a stooge couldn't love Ivy and Bean" – Kirkus Reviews

Meet Ivy & Bean. Bean has lots of friends, loves stomping in puddles and hates being bored. Ivy has just moved in next door. Ivy seems nice, wears dresses and sparkly headbands – which makes Bean think she's too boring to be friends with. But after Ivy comes to Bean's rescue they become the best of friends and begin a series of silly, sneaky, imaginative, sometimes naughty and always hilarious adventures. The perfect chapter books for grades 1–4, reluctant readers and fans of Ramona and Junie B. Jones.

"A Triumph of friendship, ingenuity and fun!"

"I read ALL of the books in this series when I was in elementary school (I am 17 now) and I absolutely LOVED them. This series truly taught me the joy in reading and creativity, as well as real social dynamics you see in everyday life."

"She just devoured this book. It was her first real chapter book and she's hooked!!"

"This is the ONLY chapter book series that my daughter has fallen for and will re-read on her own."
