Plot Summary

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 irresistible rhyming text and puckish illustrations, this book will charm creative kids everywhere, and amuse their sometimes bewildered parents.


I highly recommend this book to all readers. It's clever, funny, educational, and the illustrations are absolutely beautiful. Not only does it spark the imagination, but it is very humorous. The part about Iggy building a tower out of diapers and glue made my kids laugh out loud. I have used the book with the primary students at Lewis, as inspiration for a "paper tower challenge" and it has quickly become a favorite of many!
