Ivy+Bean book 1 is hilarious. The characters in the book make the book even funnier. I love how the book is based and its flow. I also love the main base of the storie. Right when Ivy and Bean see each other they know that they won't be friends. But Bean plays a prank on her older sister, Nancy, and Ivy comes to the rescue. This book will be VERY addictive for all different aged readers.
