Bean’s day is going downhill, and it’s only nine in the morning. Is it her fault she licked syrup off her plate? Is it her fault Nancy’s yarn got used up? Yes. Bean wonders if being good is worth the effort. Ivy says yes, that if you’re really good, animals will love you and follow you home. Wow! Ivy and Bean decide they’re going to be the best kids in town. They’re going to be kind, they’re going to be generous and pure of heart and – Wait a second! How did they end up muddy, wet and in trouble?
