Cute, short book about two seemingly opposite girls who become best friends. The dialogue is realistic and their pranks are fun. It's nothing special but perfect for early elementary readers.

Personal Response: This was a fun book about two seemingly opposite girls who become friends. I liked that the story made me think about not judging people on their outward appearance; there is often more underneath the surface.

Evaluation: Barrows creates a realistic setting that children will recognize – the adventure and drama of their neighborhood. Her characterization is also believable and young readers will relate to Ivy and Bean, their quick friendship, Bean’s tempestuous relationship with her older sister, their fear of getting into trouble, and their creative imagination. The dialogue moves the action of the story forward and reflects the typical conversations and arguments of a younger audience. Blackall’s numerous black-and-white drawings also help move the plot forward, while highlighting the differences between Ivy and Bean. Her drawings show the energy of the girls and add humor to the already amusing story. ( )

Bean does not want to be friends with Ivy - until Ivy rescues Bean from her sister, Nancy, and proves more interesting than she appeared. ( )

Bean is a creative and adventurous girl, reminiscent a bit to Ramona, but more aggressive and unrepentant. Her heart is in the right place, but her curiosity, inexperience, and annoying older pre-teen sister, often lead her into sticky situations. When she learns that a girl around her age is moving into her neighborhood, she's excited at the prospect of making a new friend. However, when Bean meets Ivy her hopes are dashed. Ivy seems to be the polar opposite of Bean in terms of personality: she is reserved, soft-spoken, and polite. She seems completely obedient to the adults around them. Bean decides to not pursue a friendship. She changes her mind, however, after Ivy comes to Bean's rescue when Bean's sister, Nancy, is out for revenge. From that point on, Bean realizes that Ivy isn't everything Bean had assumed she was. Ivy is just as willing to enjoy some pranking as Bean is, and while she appears to follow her parents' every rule she has her own way of getting out of things. She is even practicing to become a witch. Slowly, a close and formidable friendship is formed.

My girls and I enjoyed this story about a friendship between opposites, and learning to not rely on first impressions or initial appearances. The writing is engaging and funny, and the characters are relatable girls that brim with energy and imagination. The hijinks that result from their friendship are entertaining. My kids could certainly relate to a lot of the details in this story. I've noticed quite a divide in the reviews of this book online. Some people enjoy or love the story, but others are furious at the good reviews that led them to accidentally read this book. I get that some parents are worried about Bean as a role model; she does fight with her older sister, and call people names sometimes, and generally is a bit of a troublemaker. A lot of the things that I remember laughing about or bring intrigued by when I was reading books as a child, honestly. When I read this story to my girls, I made sure to take breaks and talk with them a couple of times about the need for compassion and considering other people's feelings. And I also was okay giggling along with them, too, at the instances of juvenile humor. For me, a story is a great place for kids to see real childish behavior reflected back to them, both the good and the bad. When necessary, we stop to talk if we read about kids doing stuff that would not be acceptable in our family, but I'm fine with them being exposed (and I'm only talking about topics that are appropriate to a child's world, here) to things through the safe medium of books. Also, while Bean sometimes makes bad choices, I read her as good kid at heart. However, for adults who don't want to expose their kids to characters that can sometimes be mean or disobedient, then this is not the book for their family. While I can understand the reservations some people have about the book, for my family, this was a fun start to a series that we will continue reading. ( )

Bean is a young girl whose mother keeps telling her to play with her neighbor, Ivy. Ivy has long red hair and is always reading, which Bean thinks is boring. Bean always ignores her mom when she asks her to go play with Ivy and never makes any attempts to talk to her. One day Bean, her mother, and her sister Nancy go shopping and she discovers Nancy is a “tightwad.” Nancy was going to buy a skirt, but she decided not to because it was too expensive. In order to teach her a lesson, she takes a 20 dollar bill from Nancy’s wallet, tapes string to it, and hides behind a bush. Her plan is to make Nancy reach for it, and Bean will move away tricking her. Suddenly, she sees Ivy come out from her house wearing a robe and holding a stick. Bean yells out “what are you doing?” and Ivy asks if she’s a ghost. Bean begins to mess with her not noticing that Nancy has arrived and already grabbed her 20 dollar bill. Nancy begins to yell at Bean for taking her money but luckily, Bean is able to run away from her. Suddenly, Ivy calls out to her and tells her she can help her hide in a secret place. Ivy ends up hiding her in her backyard where they learn more about each other. Bean learns that Ivy’s mother has been telling her they should be friends the way her own mother has. Ivy also tells Bean she is a witch which is why she is wearing a robe and has a magic wand. Bean suggests they work on her outfit some more so they head upstairs to her room. They fix her robe and wand, then Ivy shoes Bean her spell book. They decide they will place a “dancing spell” on Nancy that will make her dance forever. In order to achieve this spell, they need worms which Bean happens to have a lot of in her own backyard. By sneaking through their neighbors yard, they finally arrive at Bean’s backyard where they dug and collect many worms. As they are getting ready to leave Nancy spots Bean, grabs her, and begins to yell at her for taking her money. Ivy tells Nancy to let go of her friend, and Nancy responds by making fun of her outfit. Ivy starts to well up which makes Bean very angry, so she reaches into the worm bucket and throws a handful of worms at Nancy’s face. Nancy is shocked and frozen so a bean reaches in and grabs another handful of worms, throwing them at her face again. This time, a worm lands in her mouth, and Nancy begins to yell and chase the girls. Ivy and Bean manage to escape and lock themselves inside a playhouse in Bean’s backyard. As Nancy approaches the house, her foot gets stuck in the mud they dug the worms out of, and wiggles back and forth for a while before falling in. Ivy confesses to Bean that the reason Nancy was wiggling is because she cast the dancing spell on her.” In the end, Bean is punished by her mom from having dessert or watching videos but she still finds the situation funny. The girls say their goodbyes and promise to see each other the next day... and the day after that. ( )
