Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In this first book in Annie Barrows' bestselling series, young readers will meet Ivy and Bean--a dynamic duo like no other. 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 quick 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. This series is perfect for readers ages 6-9.

BARNES NOBLE REVIEW
\\\"Annie Barrows accomplishes the almost impossible task of reflecting the world of second grader, creating the tension and drama of family and friendships in language that can be read easily by child who recently graduated from easy readers to early chapter books. \\\" Lisa Von Drasek, Children\\\'s Librarian, Bank Street College of Education



Reader, Parent Librarian Love for Ivy Bean Chapter Books


“These books are fabulous! They remind me of Ramona books when I was a kid. We read them to our 5 year old and she loves them. They illustrate normal kid thinking processes and attitudes.”


“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 (even “cheeky” ones, if you may). I highly suggest this series to all parents interested in fueling their kids' love for reading, especially young girls, as I completely adored Ivy and Bean myself!”


“This book is a must read for all young readers. The story is light, quirky, and fun, all readers will love it. It has several laugh-out-loud moments and an upbeat style that readers will love. This book does have some misbehavior, but it also shows how the characters regret their bad decisions and feel sorry about them, which kids need to learn about. I highly recommend this book!”


“Our 7 year-old daughter has really expanded her vocabulary and reading skills with these chapter books. She loves to read the books to find out what kind of “trouble” Ivy and Bean get themselves into.”


“My 7-year old granddaughter loves these books about two mismatched friends and their adventures.”


“I think my daughter loves this series because it appeals to her curious and adventurous and imaginative spirit. While my daughter loves dolls and princesses, she is strong and curious and loves to get dirty--this book series appeals to her spirit.”


“This is an amazing book. My 6 year old loves reading it.”


“This is the ONLY chapter book series that my daughter has fallen for and will re-read on her own. Honestly, the characters are sooo great, and even as an adult, I was enjoying seeing the friendship develop between Ivy and Bean, and seeing what adventures their imaginations would get them into. I find the characters very authentic.”


"Annie Barrows accomplishes the almost impossible task of reflecting the world of second graders, creating the tension and drama of family and friendships in language that can be read easily by children who recently graduated from easy readers to early chapter books.

Annie Barrows writes for both grownups and children. If you’re a grownup, read this paragraph:

Annie Barrows is the co-author, with her aunt Mary Ann Shaffer, of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, published by the Dial Press in 2008. An international best-seller, translated into 38 languages, the novel was adapted into a feature film in 2018. Her best-selling second novel, The Truth According to Us, was published in 2015. Annie lives in Berkeley, California, with her family.

If you’re a kid, read this paragraph:

Wow! Was that boring or what? Annie has written a bunch of books for kids. In fact, she has written NINETEEN books for kids, and all of them are very very good. Mostly, they’re funny too. She has written the award-winning series Ivy + Bean; the also-award-winning Magic Half and its sequel, Magic in the Mix; Nothing, for young adult readers (that means it has bad words in it); a picture book called What John Marco Saw (don’t worry—she didn’t draw the pictures); and The Best of Iggy, which is the first book in a new series about—you guessed it!—a kid named Iggy who does not play the cello, plant flowers by the side of the road, or learn his lesson and become a better person. Still, he’s a pretty great kid.
