One day Bean, one of the main characters, got in trouble at school because she played a trick on her sister, Nancy. After school, Bean went to Ivyís house because she didnít want to get into trouble. Do you think Bean is going to be in trouble when she gets home? Youíll have to read this book to find out.

I liked this book for many reasons. First, Ivy took Bean into her hideout when she knew she was in trouble. Also, it was interesting when the author described Ivyís room. Finally, it was cool when Bean painted Ivyís face. As you can see, this book is worth reading.

I recommend this book because itís funny, especially when Bean played the trick on Nancy. I think kids who are in Kindergarten to third grade would like this book because itís fun to read with easy words. There are not too many words in it that you wonít know.
