Ivy & Bean Make the Rules
by Annie Barrows
ISBN: 978 1 4521 0295 5
Bean’s big sister is going to camp – a girl power camp with a nifty flyer and big plans – not that Bean is jealous, no sir. Well, maybe just a little, but she and Ivy are certain they can do just as well on their own. Who needs an official camp, anyhow? They’ll just set one up in the park! And make up their own rules! And they do – and other kids even join, and they are having such a good time that by the end of the week, not only do the kids want to return the next year, but they find a real surprise waiting for them in their tent…
These books have the right amount of fun and hijinks to suit the standard for easy chapter books, but balance it with a real friendship and a generosity of spirit that make these a definite cut above your average spunky girl series. Add in Sophie Blackall’s charming illustrations, and these have been a hit with good reason among even more discerning parents and readers. these are enjoyable, and well-recommended!
