Ivy and Bean are two girls that live on Pancake Court. They are not friends. One day Bean is playing a trick on her sister, Nancy, when she gets caught. Ivy helps Bean hide. They get in trouble, but have lots of fun together. Maybe they will be friends after all! You have to read the book to find out!
My favorite part was when Bean threw a worm into Nancy's mouth because it was funny. Bean reminded me of myself because she was goofy and messy.
I recommend this book because it reminds me of my sister and I when I prank her with my friends. Second through fourth graders will love this book!
