Bella likes to write poems. Bean likes to do everything else. Bella and Bean are two different mice with two very different personalities, but they are still best friends. Bean wants to walk down to the pond, but Bella does not have time to do that. She needs to write. Bean says that she is grumpy. Bella finally writes her poems and even writes one about Bean. She shows Bean that any group of words can make a beautiful poem. The illustrations are fun and the illustrator makes sure to use lots of letters and words in the pictures. This would be perfect for a future poet or writer.
Rebecca Kai Dotlich is very much like her character Bella. She is a poet and an author and she loves to think about words.
