This story starts out with Bean, your typical tomboy who is very satisfied to have fun. Her mother tries to get her to be friends with Ivy, who to Bean seems to be your typical Goodie-Two-Shoes and thus dismisses her. One day however while attempting to play a prank on her older sister Bean finds out that perhaps Ivy is far more mischief-filled than she had first thought. The reader is then taken on a wild neighborhood adventure with a humorous conclusion.
Regarding the danger that some might find in the play, such as walking fences, causing people to fall in the mud… I have to say that these are normal things for children to get up to. Children inherently desire to take risks. Climbing trees and hiding in bushes is low key. I have noted that more and more people try to tame and insulate children. Is it any wonder now that the current young generation looks for escape and outlet via their electronics? This book hearkens back to an earlier time, the sort that can still be found in some rural communities even if the suburbs and cities try to snuff out explorative play.
I highly recommend this book and series, especially for those that are looking for a light hearted and swift read. Children’s books don’t have to only be enjoyed by children.
I compare these books to other series and I find the others a tad more racy. These are fine for a young child looking for their fist chapter books!
