Beans On the Roof

(1988)
A Chapter Book by

 
 
Anna Bean goes to the roof in search of inspiration, and soon her family will follow her into a new world just a few floors above their home

The Bean children are not allowed to play on the roof of their apartment building. One evening Anna Bean goes up to the roof - not to play, but to be alone so she can write a poem for school. Her poetry writing fever is contagious; one by one, the rest of the Bean family visits the roof to write amongst pigeons and tall buildings - all except George, who can't think of anything to write about. Beans on the Roof is a wonderful, inspiring story for young readers with a passion for creative writing.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Betsy Byars including rare images from the author's personal collection.
