Ivy's worried. She's read a lot of books about only children, so she knows that they are sometimes spoiled rotten. They don't share their toys. They never do any work. They scream and cry when they don't get their way. Spoiler alert! Ivy doesn't have any brothers or sisters. That's why she's worried. How can she keep from getting spoiled? She could give away all her clothes, but she'd probably get in trouble. She could give away all her toys, but she likes her toys. There's really only one solution: she needs a baby sister, on the double! Luckily, Ivy and Bean know just where to get one....
Annie Barrows' bestselling chapter book series, Ivy & Bean, is a classroom favorite and has been keeping kids laughing — and reading — for more than a decade! With more than 5 million copies in print, Ivy & Bean return with a brand-new book for a new generation!
"[Ivy] and ever ebullient Bean decide to try to bring to life a baby doll after Ivy’s mom pointedly refuses to provide a needed sister. When a cellphone charger they plug into the doll’s mouth doesn’t succeed in galvanizing her (but hilariously mimics the Frankenstein story), they try dancing and calling to the gods in the park — also not quite a success but surely a spectacle. Blackall’s numerous amusing black-and-white illustrations on nearly every page match perfectly with the spare, winsome text to make for an inviting presentation with plenty of good-humored action." — Kirkus Reviews
