Ivy & Bean are best friends, and there are lots of books about them. In this book, Bean has a special book of World Records that everyone looks at and is interested in. Everybody wants to break a record. Ivy and Bean want to become the youngest people ever to dig up dinosaur fossils.
They go in Bean’s backyard and start digging. They make a huge mess. They tell everybody at school about their plan, and everybody else tells Ivy and Bean that they tried to break records, too, but it didn’t really work out. Ivy and Bean tell their friends that they really did find dinosaur bones, but nobody believes them. They tell their friends to come and see the bones at 4pm after school.
All the friends come to see the bones, and Ivy and Bean let everyone look at and touch the bones. They aren’t sure if they are dinosaur bones or bones from a mystery creature. Their friends think the bones are cool.
I really like the Ivy & Bean books because they are books about friendship and are funny.
