À propos de l'auteur

Annie Barrows is a middle-aged lady who doesn’t talk very much, which is why none of the kids who hang out in her house noticed that she was writing down everything they said. She’s like a ninja, except she’s never killed anyone. Okay, okay, she’s also the author of the Ivy + Bean books—remember them? They were fun!—and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. All of which were New York Times bestsellers, if you care about that kind of thing. www.anniebarrows.com

Ivy and Bean (Book 3) - Annie Barrows






Bean turned her book upside down and tried to read it that way. Cool. Well, sort of cool. No. Boring.

Bean sighed and turned her book back right side up. It was a book about cats that she had picked from the school library. There was a different cat on each page. Bean liked cats, but reading about them was driving her crazy. All the cats looked the same except the sphynx cat, who didn’t have any fur. He looked halfway between a dog and a rat. Bean liked him the best.

I bet Ivy’s never seen a sphynx cat, thought Bean. She knew she wasn’t supposed to talk during Drop Everything and Read, so she poked Ivy in the ribs.

Ivy’s eyes were binging across the pages of her book. Bing, bing, bing. She looked like she was watching a Ping-Pong game. She didn’t even notice Bean.

So Bean poked her again. Hey! she whispered. Earth to Ivy!

Hmm? Ivy mumbled.

Looky here! It’s a dog-rat! Bean whispered louder.

Ivy looked for a little tiny second.

Oh, she said and went back to reading.

Bean sighed again. All the other kids in Ms. Aruba-Tate’s second-grade classroom were bent over their books. Even Eric, who usually fell out of his chair two or three times during Drop Everything and Read, was quiet. He had a book about man-eating sharks.

MacAdam was picking his nose. Bean raised her hand. Ms. Aruba-Tate didn’t see because she was reading, too, so Bean called out, Ms. Aruba-Tate!

Shhh, whispered Ms. Aruba-Tate. What is it, Bean?

"There’s a problem, and it starts with M, began Bean, looking hard at MacAdam. And then N and P." She wiggled her finger next to her nose, just in case Ms. Aruba-Tate needed an extra hint.

Ms. Aruba-Tate looked at MacAdam, too. Then she put down her book and came over to Bean’s table.

I brought this from home especially for you, Bean, she said, holding out a big, shiny book. See, she pointed at the cover. "It’s The Amazing Book of World Records. I think you’ll like it."

Bean wasn’t sure. What’s a world record?

When someone does something better or longer or weirder than anyone else in the whole world, that means they’ve set a world record.

Weirder? Bean asked. That sounded interesting.

Ms. Aruba-Tate smiled. There’s a man in here who walked on his hands for eight hundred and seventy miles.

You mean on his hands and knees? Like a baby?

    Cute. I enjoyed watching the girls finding a way to work out their mistake in a fairly responsible manner that didn't leave them humiliated.

    looks very sneaky and mischevias but funny.
  • (4/5)
    Great series of chapter books to read aloud to young ones. I took the opportunity to read aloud to a girl I nanny for, and she kept asking for more! The chapters aren't too long so you can read for 15 min before bed, or an afternoon read as well. I love the interaction between Ivy and Bean, and their families.

    Very enjoyable. Head and shoulders above lots of other school / friend/ family stories. Reminds me a bit of the Ramona books.

    When her classroom teacher, Ms. Aruba-Tate, gives her a copy of The Amazing Book of World Records during a "Drop Everything and Read" session, second-grader Bean, together with her best friend Ivy, is soon involved in an effort to become a world record holder in... something. Attempting to hold hundreds of straws in her mouth, or to break a glass figurine (pilfered from her older sister Nancy's collection) by singing brings little success, however, so Bean, influenced by Ivy's current obsession with Mary Anning, sets her sights on becoming the world's youngest paleontologist. Finding some old bones buried in the back yard, the two friends become convinced that they have unearthed a dinosaur, and spread the news far and wide...I really enjoyed this third entry in author Annie Barrows and illustrator Sophie Blackall's series of chapter-books devoted to the (mis)adventures of best friends Ivy and Bean. Once again the text and artwork captured the very different personalities of the two girls, while delivering an engaging story that was humorous, and sometimes quite thought-provoking. There's this lovely little scene, about halfway through, when Ivy and Bean are discussing being right, and whether or not it matters if others know you are right:"I want other people to know I'm right. Especially when I really am right."Ivy thought for a moment. "But you're still right, even if they don't think so.""I guess." Bean sighed. "I just feel better if other people think I'm right too.""Hardly anybody ever thinks I'm right," said Ivy.Bean nodded. That was true. A lot of people didn't understand Ivy's ideas. She had had plenty of practice at not being believed. That's probably why she didn't get as mad about it as Bean did. She just went ahead with her ides anyway. You can do whatever you want if you don't care what people think, Bean realized. But you have to do it alone a lot of the time.Quite a little philosophical interlude to work in to a beginning chapter-book - especially one that operates as a humorous story, at the surface level! I was also quite charmed by Ivy's Mary Anning obsession here, since we recently read a children's biography of Anning, for The Picture-Book Clubto which I belong. Good to know that young readers will learn who she was, through this entertaining story. Finally, given the fact that Bean can be somewhat mean-spirited, I really appreciated the fact that she admits (mostly), in a scene toward to the end of the book, that she is wrong: Bean sucked in her breath. She knew what she had to say. "You were right and we were wrong," she said. "Probably."All in all, a worthy addition to the Ivy and Bean series, one I would recommend to any chapter-book reader who enjoyed the first two.

    My favorite one of the series so far. My daughter was really into the world record theme and the idea of being a paleontologist! Lots of discussions around this book!

    This is a delightful easy chapter book about two very good friends Ivy and Bean. They are in second grade. Their teacher shares a book about breaking records so the girls get the idea to break their own record. After lots of stops and starts they decide to dig for dinosaur bones become the youngest paleontologists. They start digging in Bean’s backyard and find bones! What a surprise. They can’t wait to tell their class and then do a show and tell in their backyard. But what happens when they realize that the bones they find don’t belong to a dinosaur? This is a funny and engaging read that will be enjoyable for students who want to start chapter books.
