Description

It's the Science Fair, and the second grade is all over it! Some kids are making man-eating robots. Some kids are holding their breath for a very, very long time. Some kids are doing interesting things with vacuum cleaners. The theme, obviously, is global warming. But what should Ivy and Bean do? Something involving explosions? Or ropes? Somethingwith ice cubes? Or maybe . . . maybe something different.




About the Author
Annie grew up in Northern California, and graduated from the University of California at Berkeley, with a degree in Medieval History. After earning an M.F.A. in Creative Writing at Mills College, Annie wrote a number of books for grown-ups. In 2003, Annie grew weary of grown-ups, and began to write for kids, which she found to be way more fun. Her first children's book, Ivy and Bean, was an ALA Notable Book for 2007.

SOPHIE BLACKALL is the illustrator of "Meet Wild Boars", a "Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books" Blue Ribbon selection. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
