Ivy and Bean - Book 6 (Ivy & Bean) Exciting! Thanks to Chronicle Books, we have one copy of the fantastic Ivy and Bean: Doomed to Dance (Book 6), by Annie Barrows, to giveaway.

“Finally! After begging their parents for ballet lessons, Ivy and Bean finally get what they want…well, not exactly. Much to their surprise, it turns out ballet lessons do not include karate chops and roundhouse kicks to the villain’s heart. The girls have no interest in learning how to dance gracefully, but they promised their parents they would finish the entire ballet course! When it comes time for Ivy and Bean to participate in the ocean-themed class recital, the girls must figure out a way to get out of it without breaking their promises.”

  • My 6 year old daughter absolutely loves Ivy & Bean. We plowed through books 1 & 2 together and are waiting for the arrival of #3. I have found the series to be very well-written, unlike many chapter book series for young readers.
