Iggy Peck, Architect

by Andrea Beaty
Illustrator David Roberts

Harry N. Abrams | October 1, 2007 | Hardcover

Iggy Peck, Architect is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
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.

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!
