Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beaty illustrated by David Roberts is a hilarious, irreverent book about doing your own thing. Since the age of two, Iggy is creative, independent, and not afraid to express himself. Iggy's one passion is building with anything he can get his hands on. His parents are always proud of his creations, though at times are surprised by his choice of materials. But not all appreciate his talent. Iggy faces a challenge when his second-grade teacher Miss Lilia Greer declares her dislike for architecture. Iggy may have to trade his T square in for a box of crayons. 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. "YOUNG IGGY PECK IS AN ARCHITECT and has been since he was two, when he built a great tower - in only an hour - with nothing but diapers and glue."
32 pages. Size: 9"x 0.5" x 11". Hardcover with jacket.
