After taking on ghosts and bad babysitters, what else is there for this dynamic duo to overcome? Well, this time out, they are going to try to be as good as possible-so good that even woodland creatures will just walk right up to them and be their friends.

"Fans of girlfriends Ivy and Bean will be delighted by their fifth adventure, once again narrated by the talented Cassandra Morris. Second-grader Ivy believes that if she's super good and pure of heart, the animals of the forest--even wolves--will follow her around. Though Bean thinks it's a great idea, she doubts her own ability to be that good. Morris's childlike voice complements this hilarious story. She uses a slight variation to distinguish between the rambunctious Bean and the angelic Ivy. When Ivy's plan backfires, Bean goes overboard, shocking the neighborhood with her bad behavior. Morris's narration has a steady rhythm that carries young listeners to the story's climax--in which Crummy Matt, the bully of Pancake Court, inadvertently saves the day. L.A.C.
