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

*** Warning: This review contains spoilers! ***

First off, I have to give this book praise because it is the first chapter book that my 7-year-old first grader read all on her own, cover to cover. She got it as a gift, and though she was at first indifferent to it, once she picked it up, she read the entire book in one sitting. She is now very excited to go back and read book one - this book is the second in the series - and the rest of the series, too. The reading level is exactly appropriate for her, and clearly she finds the content amusing.

I want to say, too, that I really liked Ivy and Bean's teacher, Ms. Aruba-Tate. I thought she was kind, yet firm, and just what an elementary school teacher should be.

So, why only 3 stars? Basically, I don't like the way the two girls behave. I'm probably over-thinking it, but here goes...

Sure, Ivy and Bean's antics appeal to young readers. But I just can't get over the worry that maybe my daughter will pick up some bad ideas, with disastrous results. Yes, Ramona Quimby (whose books I love) behaved badly, too, but usually, by the time she got to be school-aged, she was well-intentioned, though sometimes misguided or misunderstood. Ivy and Bean, on the other hand, cause trouble even though it seems like they should know better.

Early on in the book, I was appalled that Bean physically tackled another student to the ground and then smashed plums into his hair - at school! Okay, I can see the humor in the situation, and in the book, Bean and the other student were simply told to "work it out.

Format: Paperback
My six-year-old daughter loves to read and has recently started reading chapter books. Once she got over her obsession with the Junie B. Jones series, I managed to get her interested in the Cam Jansen series of books and then I discovered the Ivy and Bean series. 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!). These traits appeal to my daughter as she is quite the adventurer herself, and the chapters are relatively short, which makes it easy for her to read independently. The books average about 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 that appear in each chapter add to the appeal of these books. In the second book in the Ivy and Bean series, BFFs Ivy and Bean are convinced that the toilet at their school is haunted! They convince their classmates and other kids at their school that there is a ghost in the bathroom, and when the teachers find out, all hell breaks loose! The story is fun, with an engaging plot that keeps young children interested and motivated to read. Highly recommended!

A great follow up to the first book. Annie Barrows did it again. Finally, early chapter books that a kid can feel like a "big kid" reading and the parents can stomach. Well done.

Format: Paperback
My granddaughter, who is just starting chapter books, likes to read these books and/or have them read along to her. Why?
Ivy and Bean are friends. Good friends. Being a friend and having a friend is an important thing, and appeals to my reader.
Ivy and Bean have very different personalities. It's not a good girl/bad girl deal. Kids who generally behave well but sometimes mess up are also appealing, and identifiable.
Most Ivy and Bean adventures arise from goofy stuff that pops into their heads, (ghosts, finding fossils, and so on). Well, my girl can't actually do magic either, but she understands pretending really hard.
It's not a lot of fancy princess stuff. That was fine, but we're moving away from that. (But there is a lot of dressing-up from the dress-up box; and that's fine.)
The parents are loving and supportive. That is a great comfort, and I simply do not understand kids' light entertainment, (as opposed to "problem"), books that feature idiot, distant, or absent parents.
Everything is fueled by their imagination, which, apart from building reading skills, seems like it should be the point of these types of books.

So, dive in anywhere, the books don't have to be read in order, and just have a nice reading experience.
