Editorial Reviews


"Second-grade besties and neighbors Ivy and Bean get their last hurrah in the final installment of this 12-book series that captivates beginning readers with the girls' mischievous antics. In true Ivy and Bean fashion, their last adventure together-searching for buried treasure-starts off on the wrong foot but ends spectacularly. Young fans come away with food for thought about what really makes something highly coveted. Dare we say these stories qualify?"-Parents Magazine

The adventures that began with "Ivy and Bean" arrive at a rumbustious conclusion with Ivy Bean Get to Work!. Written by Annie Barrows and illustrated by Sophie Blackall, the 12 books in this series for readers ages 6-10 sparkle with humor and smart observations. . . . There's a saying that you can't make old friends, but in the case of children's books it's not true. Returning to characters you've met once, it feels as though you've known them forever. Nice, isn't it?"-The Wall Street Journal

“As always, Barrows’ concise, clever text captures a child’s voice and perspective. . . . This accessible story will appeal to children ready for short chapter books and will work equally well read aloud. Depicting a diverse classroom of distinctive students, Blackwell’s signature black-and-white illustrations break up the text and bring Barrows’ characters to life. Though this is the 12th in the series, it stands on its own. . . This funny, engaging story is an excellent addition to all libraries, and a must for those stocking the series.”-School Library Journal

"The twelfth (and final) book about Ivy and Bean finds these best friends still in second grade but hurtling toward their futures by way of career day at school. . . . Blackall's spot art captures the fervor and diligence of the friends. . . [N]ew readers will find funny situations and a fast-moving plot to enjoy."-The Horn Book Magazine

"Many of the children who read the first Ivy + Bean book as second graders in 2006 are now, unbelievably, college graduates. But the series has remained fresh and relevant, offering a perfect first dip into chapter books for a whole new generation of readers. Like the others in the series, this effort combines Barrows' nicely developed characters and her hilarious, easy-to-read take on juvenile adventures with Blackall's spot-on Chinese ink illustrations on every spread, with purely delightful results. . . . [Ivy and Bean Get to Work is t]he final, delicious entry in a much-loved series."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Grounded in everyday details of primary-grade children's experiences, Barrows' amusing narrative is just right for the audience. Blackall's expressive black-and-white illustrations brighten every double-page spread while clarifying terms such as divining rod. The twelfth volume in the dependable Ivy and Bean series delivers an engaging story for kids moving up to chapter books."-Booklist

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.
