Ivy and Bean go searching for treasure in Book 12—the 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. Best friends 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!

• A laugh-out-loud adventure
• Bestselling series—more than 6 million copies sold!
• From beloved author Annie Barrows and award-winning illustrator Sophie Blackall

Ivy and Bean make Career Day—and every day—so much fun with their mischievous antics.
