More than 100 bookstores and libraries are planning to host Ivy & Bean Day Events on November 7th, 2009, to celebrate the release of Ivy and Bean: Doomed to Dance, Book 6 in the New York Times Best-Selling series by Annie Barrows.
Publisher’s synopsis: With over 700,000 copies sold, the Ivy and Bean series is a huge hit with kids, teachers, parents and librarians. The adventures of the irrepressible duo continue in the latest installment IVY AND BEAN DOOMED TO DANCE. Ivy and Bean beg their parents for ballet lessons and swear they won’t quit. Finally, they get what they want…well, not exactly. The girls thought ballet would be leaping and kicking and scaring the heck out of the Prince. It’s not. They have no interest in learning how to dance gracefully and must figure out a way to get out of their dance recital without breaking their promise.
About the author: Annie Barrows is the co-author of the New York Times Best-Selling The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society but Ivy and Bean was her first book for kids. She lives in Northern California with her husband and two daughters. One daughter is like Ivy and the other is like Bean.
