Doomed to Dance (Ivy and Bean #6)
|Series:||Ivy and Bean|
Finally! After months of begging their parents for ballet lessons, Ivy and Bean finally get what they want . . . well, not exactly. Much to their surprise, it turns out ballet lessons do not cover karate chops and roundhouse kicks. The girls have no interest in learning how to dance gracefully, but they promised their parents they would finish the entire balletcourse! When it comes time for Ivy and Bean to participate in the ocean-themed class recital, the girls must figure out a way to get out of it without breaking their promises.
Annie Barrows started writing books when she was nine, but they never turned out the way she wanted, so she gave up on writing for twenty-five years. She's written a bunch of books for grown-ups, but Ivy and Bean is her first book for kids. Annie lives in Northern California with her husband and two daughters. One daughter is like Ivy and the other is like Bean. Sophie Blackall is an Australian illustrator whose work has appeared in many newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and two delightful, spying, scheming, spell-casting children. Her previous books include Ruby's Wish and Meet Wild Boars.
