Iggy has one passion and that is building. His adoring parents are proud of his creations, though they’re sometimes surprised by his materials—using dirty diapers to build a tower or pancakes and coconut pie to build the Gateway Arch. When his second-grade teacher declares her dislike of architecture, Iggy faces an interesting challenge. He loves building too much to give it up! Andrea Beaty’s irresistible rhyming text with interesting facts combined with David Roberts’s illustrations makes this a staple in every child’s library.

“There are worse things to do when you’re in grade two than to spend your time building a dream.”

– Iggy Peck
