Ivy + Bean, Book 1
My parents were forever trying to get me to like the kids of their friends. These kids were often weird. It was a problem. Ivy and Bean are very different. Bean is loud and wild and goofy. Ivy is quiet and full of ideas. She spends most of her time learning how to be a witch.
Common Sense says
In the stories, Ivy a quiet, intellectual child and Bean a rambunctious child become fast friends despite their differences and their initial reluctance to like each other — "two friends who never meant to like each other", as the tagline for the series goes. They are both 7-year-old girls who live on a cul-de-sac in a suburban environment on Pancake Court, in an unnamed town. In each book they get into considerable mischief, and have wild adventures with the other characters in the neighborhood. The books feature illustrations, but are not picture books; the reading level is suitable for middle grade school readers. As of , there are ten volumes in the series.
