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.

"Enchanted by a picture that makes it seem like a ballerina has just kicked a villain in the head, second-grade best friends Ivy and Bean beg their parents for ballet lessons. But the girls' parents make them promise that they won't quit ballet or complain about their dance lessons. Then, when they are cast as squids in their first recital, Ivy and Bean scheme to find a way out of ballet, which seems to have been a terrible mistake. If you like hilarious stories about friends who are very different from one another but get along great, you'll love Ivy and Bean."
