Ivy and Bean by Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall - review


Ivy and Bean by Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall. Age 6-9. Another new series, this one about two girls who decide to be friends - kind of your standard mismatched buddy pairing. Like Lethal Weapon with worms instead of guns. There is teasing: there's an older sister that Ivy and Bean play tricks on, but I'm ok with that. Playing tricks up the power gradient is more fair than picking on a younger sibling (a la Star Jumper) in my opinion. Thumbs up.
