Ivy and Bean Doomed to Dance (Book 6)
Annie Barrows lives in Northern California with her husband and two daughters. She is also the co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
Sophie Blackall is an Australian illustrator whose previous books include Ruby's Wish and Meet Wild Boars. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
"Another pleasing adventure, engagingly illustrated and fun for new readers."
"In this sixth entry in the series, Barrows continues to provide early chapter book readers with a laugh a minute in a story loaded with comic situations of which illustrator Blackall takes full advantage. Ivy and Bean may not enjoy their adventures in ballet, but readers certainly will."
—The Horn Book Magazine
"The story is solidly written, and the expressive black-and-white illustrations, some full-page, add to the humor. Early chapter-book readers will appreciate and relate to the friends' dilemma."
—School Library Journal
