Think about these story elements as you read the introduction to a book you
might like to read.
Introduction to Beanboy
Bean loves comics--both reading them and drawing them. His favorite comic
book character is the superhero H2O. With enough water, H2O can double in
size. Bean buys every new issue of the comic book on the day it comes out. In
Lisa Harkrader's book, Beanboy, we meet Bean when he has just bought the
newest issue of H2O. Sam, a boy Bean knows but doesn't like much, grabs
Bean's new comic book and throws it into a puddle of water. All this makes Bean
almost late to pick up his younger brother Beech at the bus stop. Bean runs all
the way to the bus stop. He is worried about what might happen if he isn't there
when Beech gets off the bus. Beech is 9 years old, and he goes to a different
school from Bean. Bean is in the 8th grade and in High School. He takes care of

his brother in their apartment each day until their mother gets home from work.
Their mother also takes college classes at night.
Bean gets to the bus stop just in time, and walks home with Beech. Beech
doesn't like going up the stairs to their apartment. He likes to sit down backwards
on the stairs, and push himself up, one step at a time. Bean used to try to talk
Beech into walking up the stairs, but now Bean just waits. It isn't easy to get
Beech to change his mind about something.
When Bean and Beech finally get inside, Beech wants Bean to read the new
comic book to him. Beech can't wait to find out what happens in the new story.
Bean wants to let the comic book dry out first. He is afraid the wet pages will tear.
But Beech keeps asking, so Bean reads the comic book to him, and some of the
pages do get torn. Bean doesn't really mind though, because he can't believe
what he finds on the last page of the new comic book.
The new comic book has a big announcement. There will be a contest to see
who can come up with the best sidekick for H2O. The prize will be a full college
scholarship. The new sidekick will be in every H2O comic book from that time on.
Winning the contest becomes Bean's new goal in life.
Bean really wants to join the school Art Club. But it meets after school.
Someone else would have to take care of Beech on those days, and that would
cost money. Bean thinks his mom would pay for it, but then she would worry
about the extra expense. He knows his mom worries about leaving him to watch
Beech so often. And would a babysitter be patient enough to wait while Beech
scooted up the stairs sitting down backwards? You can find out more about Bean
and Beach, and a sidekick for H2O in Beanboy. You will probably enjoy the
comic book drawings in the book as well.
