Best friends Ivy and Bean go searching for treasure in this final story in the New York Times bestselling early chapter book series!

It's Career Day at Emerson Elementary School, and all the students have to choose what they want to be when they grow up. No problem. Ivy and Bean already have that all figured out. At least, they thought so, until they met Herman the Treasure Hunter. Now everyone in the second grade is looking for treasure—and finding it. Everyone except Ivy and Bean, that is. They need to get out their shovels and turn up some treasure on the double!

The Last But Certainly Not Least Ivy and Bean Trivia Quiz

Sometimes here at Ivy and Bean Central, we get together and eat some cake and make up trivia quizzes. There was “The First and Best Ivy and Bean Trivia Quiz.” Later came “The Second and Also Really Good Trivia Quiz.” There might have been a few others too; Ivy and Bean Central can’t remember each and every little thing. What we do know for sure is that we have always encouraged cheating on our trivia quizzes. Heck, we even told you which book the answer was in. But since this is the last Ivy and Bean Trivia Quiz, we are toughening up! We aren’t going to help AT ALL. We aren’t even going to give you a list of possible answers for each question. All of us here at Ivy and Bean Central have been working night and day to find the trickiest, tiniest little details to ask you questions about. Are we doing this because we’re mean? No! We’re doing this because you guys are too smart. If we made a regular quiz, you’d be done in twelve seconds, and then you’d be bored. We don’t want you bored. We want you peppy! Nothing makes a person peppy like tough trivia—and a prize. Yup. That’s right. There’s a prize this time. There’s never been a prize before. Do you want to know what it is?

Sorry. Government Secret.

Just kidding. The prize is the beginning of an Ivy and Bean book that has never been published. Why is it only the beginning? So YOU can finish it any way you want. Then you will be an author! But you don’t have to finish it if you don’t want to. You can just read it. It’s pretty funny.

Here’s how you win the prize. There are TWELVE quiz questions, one from each book, but not in order. Each of the questions has only ONE right answer (boy, are we tough!). The first letter of each answer, written in the order of the questions, will spell a word or phrase. This is the key to
the prize.

Are you ready? Sure? Okay, here we go!

Love for the Internationally Bestselling Series

"[Ivy and Bean is] responsible for making my six year old daughter fall in love with reading! It is a treasure for kids and moms and dads and grandparents. My daughter loves Ivy and Bean and so do I and so does my 82 year-old mom, so thank you, thank you, thank you."

—Carrie, San Mateo, CA
