Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janice | 2/2/2014

    " Ivy and Bean are best friends. They shouldn't be but are. Ivy is very quiet and always knows the right answers. Bean is loud, talks alot, and fidgets. They "see" a ghost in the outdoor bathrooms at school. Of course, everyone in their class hears and they get in trouble. They decide they must send the ghost back to it's grave. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 1/31/2014

    " I can't believe I missed reviewing this book. It's one of my favorite Ivy & Bean books. The lovely pun-ny title is enough to make you laugh. Ivy and Bean inadvertently start the rumor that the girl's bathroom is haunted. So, of course, none of the girls can use it any more, so, the ghost has to go. And Ivy and Bean are just the people to preform the magic involved in making the ghost go away. Fun from start to finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/30/2014

    " Another fun book about these two. Great illustrations. And I picked up a new phrase: "trouble with cheese on top." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gigi | 1/27/2014

    " i liked when they put food coloring in the potion and when the ghost has glowing eyes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christi | 1/26/2014

    " My first Ivy and Bean book. I can see the appeal. I like the friendship and imagination of the two girls and the fact that they have a mischievous streak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emmi | 1/25/2014

    " I think that Ivy and Bean and the Ghost That Had to Go is really funny, especially the part when the toilet overflows in the girls' bathroom and Mrs. Noble gets mad. The pictures are really nice, and I like the way everybody's eyes look when they are staring at the ghost. I also enjoyed when Bean snipped Nancy's hair in the middle of the night for a potion. I love Ivy's bedroom! The first book talks about it more and shows a great picture of it, though. Read Book 1 and you will understand Book 2 much better. I thought it was a really great book. READ IT, READ IT, READ IT, READ IT, READ IT!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donald | 1/24/2014

    " Again, my daughter liked this, but I was so-so toward it. Lots of ghosts, graves, and dead talk. A little darker than the others we have read. But she likes them, so this is just my opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lily | 1/21/2014

    " that book was great! it was not really funny though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooke | 1/18/2014

    " i love this book. now i am on book 3. i am going in order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacquie | 1/15/2014

    " This was a young reader chapter book. I felt like I was in elementary school again! It was very cute and I read the whole thing to my kids in one sitting. It's like this lady remembered exactly what it was like to be in elementary school again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janaki | 12/25/2013

    " I loved this book, and I also want to read the others in the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Nelson | 11/30/2013

    " 3 stars for the story, 5 stars for the excellent reading. Fair warning, this story has a few gross out moments, where blood and other bodily fluids are discussed among 7-year old girls. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eveli Acosta | 11/10/2013

    " Such a cute book, my daughter loved it! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari | 10/2/2013

    " another adorable Ivy and Bean story. The characters are believably mischeivious and my 1st and 3rd grader cannot get enough of them! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 9/25/2013

    " This was an interesting story and just enough pictures to keep my 4 year old entertained. I thought the plot line was a litte better pulled together in this book than the first one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Egerman2 | 1/8/2013

    " It was hilarious because they were so young and they didn't understand that the ghost wasn't real. What silly girls. It was just their imagination! You can't blame them because they're only in 2nd grade. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/8/2012

    " Fun book. I can't wait for Aspen to read it and figure out the double meaning in the title. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassie | 5/12/2011

    " I love these girls! The fact that Bean eats "ice cream soup" at the end pretty much sums up everything about this series that is so perfect. Ivy + Bean are like a time machine back to second grade, for me. "
