More About the Author

I could tell you a whole bunch of facts about myself--born here, went to school there, blah blah--but that doesn't seem like much fun. So I've decided to make you guys do some work. If you can figure out these puzzles, you'll know all sorts of interesting things about me. And many of them are true, too.

1. I was born in a year with a 2 in it. Also a 6.
2. I was born in a city in California that begins with an S and has eight letters total.
3. The first time I moved, I couldn't move.
4. My best friend lived next door, had four older brothers and sisters, and a name that rhymes with Gabe. She had thirty-seven plastic horses and one real horse.
5. My first job was in a place with lots of books. My second job was in a place with lots of sugar. My third job was in a different place with lots of books.
6. I went to college in a town with a K in it and I studied a subject that ends in Y.
7. After I was done with college, I got a job. And then another one. And then there was one after that. Don't worry about it.
8. One of the following things is not true: I have been up in a hot air balloon. I have six toes on one of my feet. I can read palms.
9. I have written fifteen books under three different names. See if you can figure out what they are.
10. I have two pets. They are bigger than a bar of soap and smaller than a shoe, and they really like parsley.

Have fun!
Annie Barrows

Format: Hardcover
The Ivy and Bean series of books will appeal to girls ages 6-9. My daughter loves the central characters, Bean and her best friend Ivy. The girls are precocious, intelligent, and always up to some adventure (or misadventure, depending on how one looks at it!). The chapters are relatively short, which make it easy for her to read independently. The books average about 100-120 pages, and she manages to read up to 40 pages per sitting (around 45 minutes).

What I found to be fascinating was that the plot for each story is so well-written and developed that my daughter could not stop once she started reading! I usually sit with her and supervise her reading, helping out with some difficult words, and she gets so involved with the story that she just keeps on reading. This to me is the mark of a good book, one that entices a young reader to keep reading. The language is not dumbed down, on the contrary, there are some challenging words which I help my daughter with (pronunciation and definition, if necessary).

The black and white illustrations by Sophie Blacksall that appear in each chapter add to the appeal of these books. This boxed set contains books 1-8, and focuses on the friendship and adventures of two seven-year-old girls Ivy and Bean who live in the same neighborhood. Initially, Bean (who has short dark hair) does not care to play with Ivy (who has red hair), but an unusual 'meeting' results in the beginning of a lovely and fun friendship!

The second book, Ivy and Bean And the Ghost that Had to Go, and the third book, Ivy and Bean Break The Fossil Record also contain engaging plots. The black and white illustrations which are abundant throughout the books kept my young daughter who is a visual learner eager to read on to discover what happens in the story.

Set came perfectly packaged and Brand New condition. I was shocked that I could get the whole set of hard bound books for the price of one hard bound book!

I got the set for my daughter who just turned 6. When it came, she started to read the first book all on her own. She loves it and is reading book 2 right now.
Great hardcover books with big, easy to read prints and nice illustrations.
I was lucky and got the whole set for $13.xx. Don't think I'd pay $99 for the set though.
