A hilarious, irreverent book about doing your own thing

Meet Iggy Peck—creative, independent, and not afraid to express himself! In the spirit of David Shannon’s No, David and Rosemary Wells’s Noisy Nora, Iggy Peck will delight readers looking for irreverent, inspired fun.

Iggy has one passion: building. His parents are proud of his fabulous creations, though they’re sometimes surprised by his materials—who could forget the tower he built of dirty diapers? When his second-grade teacher declares her dislike of architecture, Iggy faces a challenge. He loves building too much to give it up! With Andrea Beaty’s irresistible rhyming text and David Roberts’s puckish illustrations, this book will charm creative kids everywhere, and amuse their sometimes bewildered parents.
Also from the powerhouse author-illustrator team of Iggy Peck, Architect, is Rosie Revere, Engineer, a charming, witty picture book about believing in yourself and pursuing your passion. Ada Twist, Scientist, the companion picture book featuring the next kid from Iggy Peck's class, is available in September 2016.
Andrea Beaty is the author of When Giants Come to Play; Iggy Peck, Architect; Doctor Ted; and the mid-grade novel Cicada Summer. As a kid, she spent her days being a detective, world explorer, movie star, and spy. Now, as a children's author, she spends her days pretty much the same way! Along with children's authors Julia Durango and ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beaty Out of all the picture books this author has released so far, I probably like these illustrations the best. This gem is full of charm, humor, warmth, creativity and tenacity. Iggy Peck is a born architect--one of those lucky few who knows absolutely what he wants to do with his life and decides to do it in every way he can--starting by using his diapers to build a skyscraper! His parents encourage his creativity and talent, but when Iggy gets to second grade his teacher puts a damper on both. Because SHE does not like tall buildings (she had an unfortunate experience as a child!) no one else should, either. if you want to use it to convince the youth of America that architecture is a fun and interesting occupation, by all means go ahead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Entertaining and Inspiring This is a wonderful story that will inspire young (and old) minds to use their imagination to build and create something wonderful. The only weakness in the story is that Iggy actually uses more engineering than design to save the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous read! I bought this for my active "out of the box" thinker son for his 8th birthday. He loves it! It's not a difficult read, nor a long one for that matter, but it's beautifully written and illustrated. Your creative child will end the book feeling valued for their special skills. There is a bit of Iggy Peck in all of us!
