Review by Booklist Reviews

Ivy and Bean return in their fifth story in which both girls take their goodness to a new level. Ivy, having heard about St. Francis, thinks it might be nice to be so pure of heart that animals follow her around. She tries to get Bean to be good, and then to be bad, so that she can reform her and the neighborhood bully, Matt, in the process. Though not quite as crisp as the first books in the series, this is still plenty of fun, especially for the duo s many fans. As always, Blackall s delightful illustrations add smiles and substance. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.
