To celebrate the first week of Ivy & Bean - I am reposting an Interview we did with Ivy & Bean back in December. Here is an excerpt from the interview.  To read the whole interview, click here.

Hi Andrea, 
Ivy says: We’re glad to know that you like the books about us. 
Bean says: Of course she likes them. Who wouldn’t like them? 
Ivy: She’s asking us what books we like besides The Amazing Book of World Records
Bean: I don’t like any other books. 
Ivy: Yes you do. You liked that book called The World of Weird: Unbelievable Animals
Bean: Oh yeah. I did like that one. And I liked that one about how to pan for gold. Even though I never found any gold.
